ENZYME entry: EC 6.2.1.59

Accepted Name
Long-chain fatty acid adenylase/transferase FadD26.
Alternative Name(s)
FadD26.
Reaction catalysed
ATP + a long-chain fatty acid + holo-[(phenol)carboxyphthiodiolenone synthase] <=> AMP + diphosphate + a long-chain acyl-[(phenol)carboxyphthiodiolenone synthase]
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme, present in pathogenic species of mycobacteria, participates in the pathway for biosynthesis of phthiocerols.
  • It catalyzes the adenylation of the long-chain fatty acids arachidate (C(20)) or behenate (C(22)) and potentially the very-long-chain fatty acid lignocerate (C(24)).
  • The activated fatty acids are then loaded to EC 2.3.1.292.
