Beta-ketoacyl-(acyl-carrier-protein) synthase III
enzymology, a beta-ketoacyl- [acyl-carrier-protein] synthase III (EC number|220.127.116.11) is an enzymethat catalyzes the chemical reaction
:acetyl-CoA + malonyl- [acyl-carrier-protein] acetoacetyl- [acyl-carrier-protein] + CoA + CO2
This enzyme belongs to the family of
transferases, specifically those acyltransferases transferring groups other than aminoacyl groups. The systematic name of this enzyme class is acetyl-CoA:malonyl- [acyl-carrier-protein] C-acyltransferase. Other names in common use include 3-oxoacyl:ACP synthase III, 3-ketoacyl-acyl carrier protein synthase III, KASIII, KAS III, FabH, beta-ketoacyl-acyl carrier protein synthase III, beta-ketoacyl-ACP synthase III, beta-ketoacyl (acyl carrier protein) synthase III, and beta-ketoacyl-acyl-carrier-protein synthase III. This enzyme participates in fatty acid biosynthesis.
