Gene : ADS2 A. thaliana

Gene ID  ? AT2G31360
Brief Description  16:0delta9 desaturase 2  Source: Araport11 (06/2016).
Is Obsolete?  false
Computational Description  ? 16:0delta9 desaturase 2 (DS2); FUNCTIONS IN: oxidoreductase activity, oxidoreductase activity, acting on paired donors, with oxidation of a pair of donors resulting in the reduction of molecular oxygen to two molecules of water; INVOLVED IN: oxidation reduction, lipid metabolic process; EXPRESSED IN: 22 plant structures; EXPRESSED DURING: 14 growth stages; CONTAINS InterPro DOMAIN/s: Fatty acid desaturase, type 1, core (InterPro:IPR015876), Fatty acid desaturase, type 1 (InterPro:IPR005804); BEST Arabidopsis thaliana protein match is: delta 9 desaturase 1 (TAIR:AT1G06080.1).  Source: TAIR, Jun 30, 2015.
Curator Summary  ? Encodes a protein homologous to delta 9 acyl-lipid desaturases of cyanobacteria and acyl-CoA desaturases of yeast and mammals. expression up-regulated by cold temperature. It is involved in the synthesis of the 24:1n-9 and 26:1n-9 components of seed lipids, sphingolipids and the membrane phospholipids phosphatidylserine (PS), and phosphatidylethanolamine (PE).  Source: TAIR, Jun 30, 2015.
