Polyketide synthase, acyl transferase domain (IPR020801)

Short name: PKS_acyl_transferase

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships


Modular protein that is responsible for the completion of one condensation-processing cycle. The beta-ketoacyl synthase region is responsible for the actual condensation reaction while the acyl/malonyl transferase region is responsible for incorporating carboxylic acids units onto an acyl carrier protein (ACP) domain.
