Secondary Information

Protein Function Fatty acid desaturase 6 is one of the Fattyacid desaturase which plays key roles in synthesizing Polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs).
Biochemical Properties It is involved in the pathway of fatty acid metabolism, which is a part of Lipid metabolism.
Site(s) of PTM(s)

N-glycosylation, O-glycosylation,
Predicted Disorder Regions (1-13)
DisProt Annotation
TM Helix Prediction 2TMHs; (65-83),(152-170)
Additional Comments Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha b (PPARαb) played a vital role in ToFads6 regulation and may promote the biosynthesis of long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids by regulating ToFads6 expression.
