Fatty acyl-CoA reductase 1 (Far1)

Catalyzes the reduction of saturated and unsaturated C16 or C18 fatty acyl-CoA to fatty alcohols (PubMed:15220348, PubMed:15220349). It plays an essential role in the creation of ether lipids/plasmalogens which synthesis requires fatty alcohols (By similarity).

In parallel, it's also required for wax monoesters production because fatty alcohols also constitute a substrate for their synthesis (PubMed:15220349). .
