Synonyms: an apo-[acyl-carrier protein]
|Superclasses:||all acyl-carrier proteins|
This class includes all the acyl-carrier proteins, which consist of the acyl-carrier proteins (ACPs) of fatty acid synthases, ACPs of polyketide synthases (PKSs), and peptidyl carrier proteins (PCPs) and aryl carrier proteins of non-ribosomal peptide synthetases (NRPSs).
Acyl carrier proteins exist as either a distinct domain within a large multifunctional protein, or as discrete soluble single-domain proteins.
ACP proteins are synthesized in their "apo" inactive form, and are activated by attachment of a 4'-phosphopantetheine moiety, removed from coenzyme A, to a serine residue, in a reaction catalyzed by 4'-phosphopantetheinyl transferase [Byers07].
