IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name:
oleoyl-[acyl-carrier-protein] hydrolase
Other names:
acyl-[acyl-carrier-protein] hydrolase
acyl-acyl carrier protein hydrolase
oleoyl-ACP thioesterase
oleoyl-acyl carrier protein thioesterase
S-acyl fatty acid synthase thioesterase
Systematic name:
oleoyl-[acyl-carrier-protein] hydrolase



Acts on [acyl-carrier-protein] thioesters of fatty acids from C12 to C18, but the derivative of oleic acid is hydrolysed much more rapidly than any other compound tested.
