Acetyl-CoA C-myristoyltransferase

Acetyl-CoA C-myristoyltransferase

In enzymology, an acetyl-CoA C-myristoyltransferase (EC number| is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

:myristoyl-CoA + acetyl-CoA ightleftharpoons 3-oxopalmitoyl-CoA + CoA

Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are myristoyl-CoA and acetyl-CoA, whereas its two products are 3-oxopalmitoyl-CoA and CoA.

This enzyme belongs to the family of transferases, specifically those acyltransferases transferring groups other than aminoacyl groups. The systematic name of this enzyme class is myristoyl-CoA:acetyl-CoA C-myristoyltransferase.
