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: Undetermined; a substrate has a non-numerical coefficient
Enzyme Commission Primary Name: mycocerosate synthase
Enzyme Commission Synonyms: mycocerosic acid synthase
Enzyme Commission Summary:
The enzyme elongates CoA esters of fatty acids from C6 to C20 by incorporation of methylmalonyl, but not malonyl, residues, to form multimethyl-branched fatty-acyl-CoAs such as 2,4,6,8-tetramethyl-octanoyl-CoA.
