Acyl Malonyl ACP Condensing Enzyme Definition


Acyl Malonyl ACP Condensing Enzyme: An enzyme of long-chain fatty acid synthesis, that adds a two-carbon unit from malonyl-(acyl carrier protein) to another molecule of fatty acyl-(acyl carrier protein), giving a beta-ketoacyl-(acyl carrier protein) with the release of carbon dioxide. EC

Synonym: beta-ketoacyl-coenzyme a (coa) synthase, beta ketoacyl acp synthase, beta keto acyl synthetase, beta keto acyl carrier protein synthase ii, beta keto acyl carrier protein synthase i, 3-oxoacyl synthetase, 3-keto-acp synthase.
