A new class EC 7, Translocases, has been added to the EC list. It will be part of ENZYME from release 2018_10. Read more about EC 7 here.

ENZYME entry: EC 2.3.1.279

Accepted Name
Long-chain-acyl-CoA--trehalose acyltransferase.
Reaction catalysed
A long-chain-fatty acyl-CoA + alpha,alpha-trehalose <=> a 2-(long-chain-fatty acyl)-trehalose + CoA
Comment(s)
  • 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, followed by the transfer of a mycolipenyl group to position 3 (see EC 2.3.1.278).
