Characteristics of the protein coding sequence
EN
Omega-3 desaturase catalyzes the conversion of arachidonic acid (20:4) to eicosapentaenoic acid (20:5) by creating a double bond at the third position from the methyl end of arachidonic acid. Research has indicated that this enzyme converts 31% of arachidonic acid to eicosapentaenoic acid and has greater activity on C20 and C22 fatty acid substrates than on C18 substrates.
