ENZYME entry: EC 2.3.1.199

Accepted Name
Very-long-chain 3-oxoacyl-CoA synthase.
Alternative Name(s)
Condensing enzyme.
Very-long-chain 3-ketoacyl-CoA synthase.
Very-long-chain beta-ketoacyl-CoA synthase.
Reaction catalysed
A very-long-chain acyl-CoA + malonyl-CoA <=> CoA + a very-long-chain 3-oxoacyl-CoA + CO(2)
Comment(s)
  • This is the first component of the elongase, a microsomal protein complex responsible for extending palmitoyl-CoA and stearoyl-CoA (and modified forms thereof) to very-long-chain acyl CoAs.
  • Multiple forms exist with differing preferences for the substrate, and thus the specific form expressed determines the local composition of very-long-chain fatty acids.
  • For example, the FAE1 form from the plant Arabidopsis thaliana accepts only 16 and 18 carbon substrates, with oleoyl-CoA (18:1) being the preferred substrate, while CER6 from the same plant prefers substrates with chain length of C(22) to C(32).
  • Cf. EC 1.1.1.330, EC 4.2.1.134 and EC 1.3.1.93.
  • Formerly EC 2.3.1.119 and EC 2.3.1.n8.
