This gene encodes a member of the membrane fatty aciddesaturase family which is responsible for inserting double bondsinto specific positions in fatty acids. This protein contains threeHis-containing consensus motifs that are characteristic of a groupof membrane fatty acid desaturases. It is predicted to be amultiple membrane-spanning protein localized to the endoplasmicreticulum. Overexpression of this gene inhibited biosynthesis ofthe EGF receptor, suggesting a possible role of a fatty aciddesaturase in regulating biosynthetic processing of the EGFreceptor.
