Fatty Acid Desaturation Gets a NAD + Reputation

Abstract

delta-5 desaturase and delta-6 desaturase are enzymes known to be involved in the synthesis of highly unsaturated fatty acids. In this issue, Kim et al. (2019) show that production of NAD + by this desaturase reaction is an adaptive response to NAD + depletion that may regulate cellular REDOX status.
