General information
Name of the gene or DNA sequence
delta-9 Acyl-lipid desaturase
CS-desC/ CS-des9
Category of DNA sequence
  • Protein coding sequence
Is the gene / DNA sequence is a synthetic molecule?
Donor organism
Donor organism
Synechocystis sp. - Cyanobacteria, SYNYX
Donor organism point of collection
Strain PCC 6803
Characteristics of the protein coding sequence
Name of the protein expressed by the coding sequence
Acyl-lipid desaturase
Biological function
The desC (a.k.a. des9) is involved in the biosynthesis of unsaturated fatty acids (lipid metabolism). Fatty acid unsaturation was found to be essential for tolerance to low temperatures by cyanobacteria. Similar proteins exist in higher plants.
