ENZYME entry: EC 2.3.1.287

Accepted Name
phthioceranic/hydroxyphthioceranic acid synthase
Alternative Name(s)
PKS2
Reaction catalysed
  • 8 (S)-methylmalonyl-CoA + 24 H(+) + hexadecanoyl-[(hydroxy)phthioceranic acid synthase] + 16 NADPH <=> C40-phthioceranyl-[(hydroxy)phthioceranic acid synthase] + 8 CO2 + 8 CoA + 8 H2O + 16 NADP(+)
  • 7 (S)-methylmalonyl-CoA + 21 H(+) + hexadecanoyl-[(hydroxy)phthioceranic acid synthase] + 14 NADPH <=> C37-phthioceranyl-[(hydroxy)phthioceranic acid synthase] + 7 CO2 + 7 CoA + 7 H2O + 14 NADP(+)
Comment(s)
  • This mycobacterial polyketide enzyme produces the hepta- and octa- methylated fatty acids known as phthioceranic acids, and presumably their hydroxylated versions.
  • Formation of hepta- and octamethylated products depends on whether the enzyme incorporates seven or eight methylmalonyl-CoA extender units, respectively.
  • Formation of hydroxylated products may result from the enzyme skipping the dehydratase (DH) and enoylreductase (ER) domains during the first cycle of condensation.
