Characterization of a Delta8-sphingolipid desaturase from higher plants: a stereochemical and mechanistic study on the origin of E,Z isomers



Characterization of a Delta8-sphingolipid desaturase from higher plants: a stereochemical and mechanistic study on the origin of E,Z isomers



Angewandte Chemie 41(13): 2298-2300



This paper provides evidences demonstrating that the Delta 8-sphingolipid desaturase from Helianthus annuus produces both the (8E)- and (8Z)-4-hydroxy-8-sphingenine in a stereospecific manner by syn elimination of two vicinal hydrogen atoms.
