ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Fatty-acyl-ethyl-ester synthase.
Alternative Name(s)
FAEE synthase.
Reaction catalysed
A long-chain-fatty-acyl ethyl ester + H(2)O <=> a long-chain-fatty acid + ethanol
  • In the reverse reaction, forms ethyl esters from fatty acids and ethanol in the absence of coenzyme A or ATP.
  • Best substrates are unsaturated octadecanoic acids; palmitate, stearate and arachidonate also act, more slowly.
