The Mortierella ∆9-1 genomic gene has only one intron, with a GC-end occurring at the 5′-terminus instead of a GTend, which is generally found in the introns of eukaryotic genes. The full-length cDNA clone was expressed under the control of the amyB promoter in Aspergillus oryzae, resulting in drastic changes in the FA composition in the transformant cells; the contents of palmitoleic acid and OA increased significantly, with accompanying decreases in those of palmitic acid and stearic acid. Multiple ∆9-desaturases (∆9-2 and ∆9-3) other than ∆9-1 are present in M.

The expression of the full-length cDNA in A. 7-fold increase in ferricyanide-reduction activity involving the use of NADH as an electron donor in its microsomes. This Mortierella CbR was purified with a 645-fold increase in the NADH-ferricyanide reductase specific activity. The purified CbR preferred NADH to NADPH as an electron donor. The second CbR gene of the same fungus has also been characterized (71). Its cDNA and predicted amino acid sequence exhibit about 70% similarity to those of the first gene.
