All-trans-retinyl-palmitate hydrolase

All-trans-retinyl-palmitate hydrolase

In enzymology, an all-trans-retinyl-palmitate hydrolase (EC number|3.1.1.64) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

:all-trans-retinyl palmitate + H2O ightleftharpoons all-trans-retinol + palmitate

Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are all-trans-retinyl palmitate and H2O, whereas its two products are all-trans-retinol and palmitate.

This enzyme belongs to the family of hydrolases, specifically those acting on carboxylic ester bonds. The systematic name of this enzyme class is all-trans-retinyl-palmitate acylhydrolase. This enzyme participates in retinol metabolism. This enzyme has at least one effector, Detergents.
