Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships


This entry contains enoyl-[acyl-carrier-protein] reductases (EC: They are components of the type II (dissociable) fatty acid synthase system and catalyse the terminal reaction in the fatty acid elongation cycle.

They belong to the short-chain dehydrogenases/reductases (SDR) domain superfamily [PMID: 7742302, PMID: 12604213, PMID: 12604210]. Crystal structures of these proteins have been extensively studied [PMID: 10398587, PMID: 12109908, PMID: 12699381, PMID: 10595560, PMID: 10493822, PMID: 9417034, PMID: 8535786].
