Accepted name: stearoyl-CoA 9-desaturase
Reaction: stearoyl-CoA + 2 ferrocytochrome b5 + O2 + 2 H+ = oleoyl-CoA + 2 ferricytochrome b5 + 2 H2O
Other name(s): Δ9-desaturase; acyl-CoA desaturase; fatty acid desaturase; stearoyl-CoA, hydrogen-donor:oxygen oxidoreductase
Systematic name: stearoyl-CoA,ferrocytochrome-b5:oxygen oxidoreductase (9,10-dehydrogenating)
Comments: An iron protein. The rat liver enzyme is an enzyme system involving cytochrome b5 and EC, cytochrome-b5 reductase. The ferricytochrome b5 produced is reduced by NADH and cytochrome-b5 reductase (EC
