EC 18.104.22.168 - Cyclopropane-fatty-acyl-phospholipid synthase
IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
cyclopropane fatty acid synthase
cyclopropane fatty acid synthetase
- S-adenosyl-L-methionine + phospholipid olefinic fatty acid = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + phospholipid cyclopropane fatty acid
The enzyme adds a methylene group across the 9,10 position of a Δ9-olefinic acyl chain in phosphatidylethanolamine or, more slowly, phosphatidylglycerol or phosphatidylinositol, forming a cyclopropane derivative (cf. EC 22.214.171.124 methylene-fatty-acyl-phospholipid synthase).
