Abstract

cDNA encoding C. elegans Delta<SUP>6 </SUP>desaturase has been cloned and sequenced, and the Delta<SUP>6 </SUP>desaturase amino acid sequence has been determined: The C. elegans Delta<SUP>6 </SUP>desaturase has a surprisingly low level of sequence identity with the known borage Delta<SUP>6 </SUP>desaturase. The C. elegans Delta<SUP>6 </SUP>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.
