Beta-ketoacyl-ACP synthetase.
Beta-ketoacyl-acyl carrier protein synthetase.
Beta-ketoacylsynthase.
Condensing enzyme.
Fatty acid condensing enzyme.
KAS I.
Reaction catalysed
Acyl-[acyl-carrier-protein] + malonyl-[acyl-carrier-protein] <=> 3-oxoacyl-[acyl-carrier-protein] + CO(2) + [acyl-carrier-protein]
Comment(s)
  • Responsible for the chain-elongation step of dissociated (type II) fatty-acid biosynthesis, i.e. the addition of two C atoms to the fatty-acid chain.
  • Escherichia coli mutants that lack this enzyme are deficient in unsaturated fatty acids.
  • Can use fatty acyl thioesters of ACP (C(2) to C(16)) as substrates, as well as fatty acyl thioesters of Co-A (C(4) to C(16)).
  • The substrate specificity is very similar to that of EC 2.3.1.179 with the exception that the latter enzyme is far more active with palmitoleoyl-ACP (C(16)-Delta(9)) as substrate, allowing the organism to regulate its fatty-acid composition with changes in temperature.
