The enzyme, which has been characterized from plants, fungi, and mammals, generates a trans double bond at position 4 of sphinganine bases in sphingolipids. The preferred substrate is dihydroceramide, but the enzyme is also active with dihydroglucosylceramide. Unlike EC 1.14.19.29, sphingolipid 8-desaturase, this enzyme does not contain an integral cytochrome b5 domain and requires an external cytochrome b5. The product serves as an important signalling molecules in mammals and is required for spermatide differentiation.
