- acetyl-CoA + n malonyl-CoA + 2n NADPH + 2n H+ a long-chain fatty acid + (n+1) CoA + n CO2 + 2n NADP+
This enzyme belongs to the family of transferases, specifically those acyltransferases transferring groups other than aminoacyl groups. The systematic name of this enzyme class is acyl-CoA:malonyl-CoA C-acyltransferase (decarboxylating, oxoacyl- and enoyl-reducing and thioester-hydrolysing). This enzyme is also called yeast fatty acid synthase. This enzyme participates in fatty acid biosynthesis and insulin signaling pathway.
