ENZYME entry: EC 2.1.1.16

Accepted Name
Methylene-fatty-acyl-phospholipid synthase.
Alternative Name(s)
Cyclopropane synthetase.
Unsaturated-phospholipid methyltransferase.
Reaction catalysed
S-adenosyl-L-methionine + phospholipid olefinic fatty acid <=> S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + phospholipid methylene fatty acid
Comment(s)
The enzyme transfers a methyl group to the 10-position of a Delta(9)- olefinic acyl chain in phosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylinositol, or, more slowly, phosphatidylethanolamine; subsequent proton transfer produces a 10-methylene group (cf. EC 2.1.1.79).
