Abstract

cDNA encoding C. elegans DELTA <6> desaturase has been cloned and sequenced, and the DELTA <6> desaturase amino acid sequence has been determined. The C. elegans DELTA <6> desaturase has a surprisingly low level of sequence identity with the known borage DELTA <6> desaturase. The C. elegans DELTA <6> desaturase has been expressed in yeast. It and other desaturases can be cloned in host organisms (e.g. plants) and can be used to provide useful metabolites.
