ENZYME entry: EC 2.3.1.39

Accepted Name
[Acyl-carrier-protein] S-malonyltransferase.
Alternative Name(s)
Acyl carrier protein malonyltransferase.
Malonyl coenzyme A-acyl carrier protein transacylase.
Malonyl transacylase.
Malonyl transferase.
Malonyl-CoA-acyl carrier protein transacylase.
Malonyl-CoA/dephospho-CoA acyltransferase.
MCAT.
Reaction catalysed
Malonyl-CoA + an [acyl-carrier-protein] <=> CoA + a malonyl-[acyl-carrier-protein]
Comment(s)
  • Essential, along with EC 2.3.1.38, for the initiation of fatty-acid biosynthesis in bacteria.
  • Also provides the malonyl groups for polyketide biosynthesis.
  • The product of the reaction, malonyl-ACP, is an elongation substrate in fatty-acid biosynthesis.
  • In Mycobacterium tuberculosis, holo-ACP (the product of EC 2.7.8.7) is the preferred substrate.
  • This enzyme also forms part of the multienzyme complexes EC 4.1.1.88 and EC 4.1.1.89.
  • Malonylation of ACP is immediately followed by decarboxylation within the malonate-decarboxylase complex to yield acetyl-ACP, the catalytically active species of the decarboxylase.
  • In the enzyme from Klebsiella pneumoniae, methylmalonyl-CoA can also act as a substrate but acetyl-CoA cannot whereas the enzyme from Pseudomonas putida can use both as substrates.
  • The ACP subunit found in fatty-acid biosynthesis contains a pantetheine-4'-phosphate prosthetic group; that from malonate decarboxylase also contains pantetheine-4'-phosphate but in the form of a 2'-(5-triphosphoribosyl)-3'-dephospho-CoA prosthetic group.
