Stearoyl-CoA desaturase (SCD; EC 18.104.22.168) is an integralmembrane protein of the endoplasmic reticulum that catalyzes theformation of monounsaturated fatty acids from saturated fattyacids. SCD may be a key regulator of energy metabolism with a rolein obesity and dislipidemia. Four SCD isoforms, Scd1 through Scd4,have been identified in mouse. In contrast, only 2 SCD isoforms,SCD1 (MIM 604031) and SCD5, have been identified in human. SCD1shares about 85% amino acid identity with all 4 mouse SCD isoforms,as well as with rat Scd1 and Scd2. In contrast, SCD5 shares limitedhomology with the rodent SCDs and appears to be unique to primates(Wang et al., 2005 [PubMed 15907797]).
