ENZYME entry: EC 2.3.1.161

Accepted Name
Lovastatin nonaketide synthase.
Reaction catalysed
9 malonyl-CoA + 11 NADPH + S-adenosyl-L-methionine + holo-[lovastatin nonaketide synthase] <=> dihydromonacolin L-[lovastatin nonaketide synthase] + 9 CoA + 9 CO(2) + 11 NADP(+) + S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + 6 H(2)O
Comment(s)
  • This fungal enzyme system comprises a multi-functional polyketide synthase (PKS) and an enoyl reductase.
  • The PKS catalyzes many of the chain building reactions of EC 2.3.1.85, as well as a reductive methylation and a Diels-Alder reaction, while the reductase is responsible for three enoyl reductions that are necessary for dihydromonacolin L acid production.
