Bioinformatics-based approaches to engineer the transmembrane Δ6 desaturase from Micromonas pusilla
The increased awareness of the health benefits of ω3-long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (ω3-LCPUFAs) has led to a drastic increase in the consumption of fish-oil supplements. This has resulted in environmental concerns and the identification of key membrane-bound desaturases involved in the biosynthesis of ω3-LCPUFAs in order to generate a sustainable source of ω3-LCPUFAs. The Micromonas pusilla Δ6 desaturase (MpΔ6des) is a membrane-bound desaturase that...[Show more]
