ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Mycolipenoyl-CoA--2-(long-chain-fatty acyl)-trehalose mycolipenoyltransferase.
Reaction catalysed
A mycolipenoyl-CoA + a 2-(long-chain-fatty acyl)-trehalose <=> a 2-(long-chain-fatty acyl)-3-mycolipenoyl-trehalose + CoA
  • The enzyme, characterized from the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis, participates in the biosynthesis of polyacyltrehalose (PAT), a pentaacylated, trehalose-based glycolipid found in the cell wall of pathogenic strains.
  • The enzyme catalyzes two successive activities - it first transfers an acyl (often palmitoyl) group to position 2 (see EC, followed by the transfer of a mycolipenyl group to position 3.
