EC 2.1.1.16 - Methylene-fatty-acyl-phospholipid synthase

  IntEnz view ENZYME view

ENZYME: 2.1.1.16


ID   2.1.1.16
DE   Methylene-fatty-acyl-phospholipid synthase.
AN   Cyclopropane synthetase.
AN   Unsaturated-phospholipid methyltransferase.
CA   S-adenosyl-L-methionine + phospholipid olefinic fatty acid = S-adenosyl-
CA   L-homocysteine + phospholipid methylene fatty acid.
CC   -!- The enzyme transfers a methyl group to the 10-position of a Delta(9)-
CC       olefinic acyl chain in phosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylinositol,
CC       or, more slowly, phosphatidylethanolamine; subsequent proton transfer
CC       produces a 10-methylene group (cf. EC 2.1.1.79).
