- ... An open reading frame with fatty acid desaturase similarity was identified in the genome of Trypanosoma brucei. The 1224 bp sequence specifies a protein of 408 amino acids with 59% and 58% similarity to Mortierella alpina and Arabidopsis thalianaΔ12 desaturase, respectively, and 51% with A. thalianaω3 desaturases. The histidine tracks that compose the iron‐binding active centers of the enzyme were ...
