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 2.3.1.86

Accepted Name
Fatty-acyl-CoA synthase.
Alternative Name(s)
Yeast fatty acid synthase.
Reaction catalysed
Acetyl-CoA + n malonyl-CoA + 2n NADPH <=> long-chain-acyl-CoA + n CoA + n CO(2) + 2n NADP(+)
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme from yeasts (Ascomycota and Basidiomycota) is a multi- functional protein complex composed of two subunits.
  • One subunit catalyzes the reactions EC 1.1.1.100 and EC 2.3.1.41, while the other subunit catalyzes the reactions of EC 2.3.1.38, EC 2.3.1.39, EC 4.2.1.59, EC 1.3.1.10 and EC 1.1.1.279.
  • The enzyme differs from the animal enzyme (EC 2.3.1.85) in that the enoyl reductase domain requires FMN as a cofactor, and the ultimate product is an acyl-CoA (usually palmitoyl-CoA) instead of a free fatty acid.
