ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
branched-chain beta-ketoacyl-[acyl-carrier-protein] synthase.
Reaction catalysed
  • 3-methylbutanoyl-CoA + H(+) + malonyl-[ACP] <=> 5-methyl-3-oxohexanoyl-[ACP] + CO2 + CoA
  • 2-methylpropanoyl-CoA + H(+) + malonyl-[ACP] <=> 4-methyl-3-oxopentanoyl-[ACP] + CO2 + CoA
  • (2S)-2-methylbutanoyl-CoA + H(+) + malonyl-[ACP] <=> (4S)-4-methyl-3-oxohexanoyl-[ACP] + CO2 + CoA
  • The enzyme is responsible for initiating branched-chain fatty acid biosynthesis by the dissociated (or type II) fatty-acid biosynthesis system (FAS-II) in some bacteria, using molecules derived from degradation of the branched-chain amino acids L-leucine, L-valine, and L-isoleucine to form the starting molecules for elongation by the FAS-II system.
  • In some organisms the enzyme is also able to use acetyl-CoA, leading to production of a mix of branched-chain and straight-chain fatty acids (cf. EC
