Accepted name: (11Z)-hexadec-11-enoyl-CoA conjugase
Reaction: (11Z)-hexadec-11-enoyl-CoA + reduced acceptor + O2 = (10E,12Z)-hexadeca-10,12-dienoyl-CoA + acceptor + 2 H2O
Other name(s): Bmpgdesat1 (gene name)
Systematic name: (11Z)-hexadec-11-enoyl-CoA,reduced acceptor:oxygen 10,13-allylic oxidase (10E,12E-forming)
Comments: The enzyme, characterized from the silk moth Bombyx mori, catalyses a step in the pathway for the biosynthesis of bombykol, a sex pheromone produced by the moth. The enzyme converts a single cis double bond at position 11 of (11Z)-hexadec-11-enoyl-CoA into conjugated 10 trans and 12 cis double bonds. Prior to catalysing this reaction, the enzyme catalyses the introduction of the cis bond in position 11 (cf. EC, acyl-CoA 11-desaturase).
