ENZYME entry: EC 6.2.1.3

Accepted Name
Long-chain-fatty-acid--CoA ligase.
Alternative Name(s)
Acyl-activating enzyme.
Acyl-CoA synthetase.
Fatty acid thiokinase (long chain).
Lignoceroyl-CoA synthase.
Reaction catalysed
ATP + a long-chain fatty acid + CoA <=> AMP + diphosphate + an acyl-CoA
Comment(s)
  • Acts on a wide range of long-chain saturated and unsaturated fatty acids, but the enzymes from different tissues show some variation in specificity.
  • The liver enzyme acts on acids from C(6) to C(20); that from brain shows high activity up to C(24).
