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

Accepted Name
Acyloxyacyl hydrolase.
Reaction catalysed
3-(acyloxy)acyl group of bacterial toxin <=> 3-hydroxyacyl group of bacterial toxin + a fatty acid
  • The substrate is lipid A on the reducing end of the toxic lipopolysaccharide (LPS) of Salmonella typhimurium and related organisms.
  • It consists of diglucosamine, beta-D-GlcN-(1->6)-D-GlcN, attached by glycosylation on O-6 of its non-reducing residue, phosphorylated on O-4 of this residue and on O-1 of its potentially reducing residue.
  • Both residues carry 3-(acyloxy)acyl groups on N-2 and O-3.
  • The enzyme from human leukocytes detoxifies the lipid by hydrolyzing the secondary acyl groups from O-3 of the 3-hydroxyacyl groups on the disaccharide (LPS).
  • It also possesses a wide range of phospholipase and acyltransferase activities (e.g. EC, EC, EC and EC, hydrolyzing diacylglycerol and phosphatidyl compounds, but not triacylglycerols.
  • It has a preference for saturated C(12)-C(16) acyl groups.
