Acyl carrier protein (ACP) plays an important role in fatty acid biosynthesis. It carries fatty acid chains via a thioester linkage to a 4'-phosphopantetheine prosthetic group as the chains are elongated. There is also evidence that it has a function in the biosynthesis of membrane-derived oligosaccharides. ACP and its acylated forms interact with at least 12 different Escherichia coli enzymes [Rawlings92, Holak88, Holak88a].

ACP is the most abundant protein in Escherichia coli, with about 1.5 million molecules per cell [Mathews90]. ACP contains a 4'-phosphopantetheine moiety (as does Coenzyme A) as the reactive unit, attached to the ACP protein through a serine side chain. The holo-[acyl-carrier-protein] synthase enzyme (encoded by acpS) transfers the 4'-phosphopantetheine moiety of coenzyme A to the apo-[acyl carrier protein] to form holo-[acyl-carrier protein], which is the active form of the carrier in lipid synthesis [Elovson68, Polacco81].
