• enzymes
  • Beta-ketoacyl-ACP synthase III, perhaps the most well known of this family of enzymes, catalyzes a Claisen condensation between acetyl CoA and malonyl ACP. (wikipedia.org)
  • prokaryotes
  • Residues from both domains contribute to substrate binding and catalysis In animals and in prokaryotes, beta-ketoacyl-ACP synthase is a domain on type I FAS, which is a large enzyme complex that has multiple domains to catalyze multiple different reactions. (wikipedia.org)
  • subunit
  • In synthase II, each subunit consists of a five-stranded beta pleated sheet surrounded by multiple alpha helices, shown in the image below. (wikipedia.org)
