Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Gene-Ontology-Terms Class: GO:0000036 - ACP phosphopantetheine attachment site binding involved in fatty acid biosynthetic process

Synonyms: acyl carrier activity

Definition: Interacting selectively and non-covalently with the attachment site of the phosphopantetheine prosthetic group of an acyl carrier protein (ACP) as part of the process of fatty acid biosynthesis.

Note that this term was moved from transporter to binding because we decided that ACP is not a true transporter, but instead tethers the growing entity that is acted on to make the fatty acid, so binding is the more correct parent. July 2012.
