18-hydroxyoleoyl-CoA + 2 NADPH + 2 H+ → (9Z)-octadec-9-ene-1,18-diol + coenzyme A + 2 NADP+ (1.2.1.84)

18-hydroxystearoyl-CoA + 2 NADPH + 2 H+ → 1,18-octadecane-diol + coenzyme A + 2 NADP+ (1.2.1.84)

16-hydroxypalmitoyl-CoA + 2 NADPH + 2 H+ → 1,16-hexadecane-diol + coenzyme A + 2 NADP+ (1.2.1.84)

Enzyme Commission Primary Name: alcohol-forming fatty acyl-CoA reductase

Enzyme Commission Synonyms: FAR (gene name)

Standard Gibbs Free Energy (ΔrG in kcal/mol): 294.2744 Inferred by computational analysis [Latendresse13]

Enzyme Commission Summary:
The enzyme has been characterized from the plant Simmondsia chinensis (jojoba). The alcohol is formed by a four-electron reduction of fatty acyl-CoA. Although the reaction proceeds through an aldehyde intermediate, a free aldehyde is not released. The recombinant enzyme was shown to accept saturated and mono-unsaturated fatty acyl-CoAs of 16 to 22 carbons.
