evolution
origin and evolution of the DELTA14 desaturase, phylogenetic analysis and tree, detailed overview
metabolism
the enzyme is involved in biosynthesis of (Z)-12- and (E)-12-tetradecenyl acetates
metabolism
the enzyme is involved in the sex pheromone biosynthetic pathway. Two pathways exist, both initiate from C16:acyl-CoA, with one involving DELTA14 and DELTA9 desaturation to generate Z9,E12-14:acyl, and the other involving the chain shortening of C16:acyl-CoA to C14:acyl-CoA, followed by DELTA12 and DELTA9 desaturation to generate Z9,E12-14:acyl-CoA. Then, a final reduction and acetylation generates Z9,E12-14:OAc, overview. Desaturases introduce a double bond into the fatty acyl carbon chain, with strict regio- and stereo-selectivity
physiological function
the enzyme is involved in the synthesis of pheromone compound (Z,E)-9,12-tetradecadienyl acetate from pheromone precursor palmitoyl-CoA
