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: Balanced.

Direct generic reaction:
a (3R)-3-hydroxyacyl-[acyl-carrier protein] + NADP+ ← a 3-oxoacyl-[acp] + NADPH + H+ (

Enzyme Commission Primary Name: fatty-acyl-CoA synthase

Enzyme Commission Synonyms: yeast fatty acid synthase, FAS1 (gene name), FAS2 (gene name)

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, 3-oxoacyl-[acyl-carrier-protein] reductase and EC, β-ketoacyl-[acyl-carrier-protein] synthase I, while the other subunit catalyses the reactions of EC, [acyl-carrier-protein] S-acetyltransferase, EC, [acyl-carrier-protein] S-malonyltransferase, EC, 3-hydroxyacyl-[acyl-carrier-protein] dehydratase, EC, enoyl-[acyl-carrier-protein] reductase (NADPH, Si-specific) and EC, (R)-3-hydroxyacid-ester dehydrogenase. The enzyme differs from the animal enzyme (EC 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.
