Stearoyl-CoA desaturase 5 (SCD5, also known as acyl-CoA desaturase 4 or SCD2) is a ER-membrane protein involved in the desturation of fatty acyl-CoA substrates (Wang et al, 2005; Zhang et al, 2005). SCD5 gene expression is upregulated in an SREBF2- and EGR2-dependent manner during Schwann cell myelination (Tabor et al, 1998; Tabor et al, 1999; Horton et al, 2003; LeBlanc et al, 2004; Jang et al, 2010).
