EC Number: 22.214.171.124
In Pathway: fatty acid elongation -- saturated
Note that this reaction equation differs from the official Enzyme Commission reaction equations for this EC number.
The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.
Most BioCyc compounds have been protonated to a reference pH value of 7.3, and some reactions have been computationally balanced for hydrogen by adding free protons. Please see the PGDB Concepts Guide for more information.
Mass balance status: Marked as unbalanced.
Enzyme Commission Primary Name: fatty-acyl-CoA synthase
Enzyme Commission Synonyms: yeast fatty acid synthase, FAS1 (gene name), FAS2 (gene name)
This reaction is involved in the elongation of fatty acids.
Enzyme Commission Summary:
The enzyme from yeasts (Ascomycota and Basidiomycota) is a multi-functional protein complex composed of two subunits.One subunit catalyses the reactions EC 126.96.36.199, 3-oxoacyl-[acyl-carrier-protein] reductase and EC 188.8.131.52, β-ketoacyl-[acyl-carrier-protein] synthase I, while the other subunit catalyses the reactions of EC 184.108.40.206, [acyl-carrier-protein] S-acetyltransferase, EC 220.127.116.11, [acyl-carrier-protein] S-malonyltransferase, EC 18.104.22.168, 3-hydroxyacyl-[acyl-carrier-protein] dehydratase, EC 22.214.171.124, enoyl-[acyl-carrier-protein] reductase (NADPH, Si-specific) and EC 126.96.36.1999, (R)-3-hydroxyacid-ester dehydrogenase. The enzyme differs from the animal enzyme (EC 188.8.131.52) in that the enoyl reductase domain requires FMN as a cofactor, and the ultimate product is an acyl-CoA (usually palmitoyl-CoA) instead of a free fatty acid.
