- Fatty-acyl-CoA synthase
enzymology, a fatty-acyl-CoA synthase (EC number|220.127.116.11) is an enzymethat catalyzes the chemical reaction
:acetyl-CoA + n malonyl-CoA + 2n NADH + 2n NADPH + 4n H+ long-chain-acyl-CoA + n CoA + n CO2 + 2n NAD+ + 2n NADP+
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 acyl-CoA:malonyl-CoA C-acyltransferase (decarboxylating, oxoacyl- and enoyl- reducing). This enzyme is also called yeast fatty acid synthase. This enzyme participates in fatty acid biosynthesis.
Long fatty acyl-CoA syntetase
CAS registry numberfor this enzyme class is CAS registry|9045-77-6."
