Family

Acyl transferase, LuxD (IPR003157)

Short name: LuxD

Family relationships

None.

Description

LuxD proteins are bacterial acyl transferases. Together with an acyl-protein synthetase (LuxE) and reductase (LuxC), they form a multienzyme complex. This complex channels activated fatty acids into the aldehyde substrate for the luciferase-catalyzed bacterial bioluminescence reaction [PMID: 11018714, PMID: 8472957].
