ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Long-chain-fatty-acid--protein ligase.
Alternative Name(s)
Acyl-protein synthetase.
Reaction catalysed
ATP + a long-chain fatty acid + [protein]-L-cysteine <=> AMP + diphosphate + a [protein]-S-(long-chain-acyl)-L-cysteine
  • Together with a hydrolase component (EC and a reductase component (EC, this enzyme forms a multienzyme fatty acid reductase complex that produces the long-chain aldehyde substrate of the bacterial luciferase enzyme (EC
  • The enzyme activates free long-chain fatty acids, generated by the action of the transferase component, forming a fatty acyl-AMP intermediate, followed by the transfer of the acyl group to an internal L-cysteine residue.
  • It then transfers the acyl group to EC
