Default  Acetyl-CoA synthase

The Long chain fatty <a href="http://www.creative-enzymes.com/product/Native-Pseudomonas-Fragi-AcylCoA-Synthetase_1685.html">acyl-CoA synthetase</a> enzyme is a member of the ligase family that activates the breakdown of complex fatty acids. Long chain fatty acyl-CoA synthetase plays a crucial role in intermediary metabolism by catalyzing the formation of fatty acyl-CoA by a two-step process proceeding through an adenylated intermediate. It is an enzyme present in all organisms from bacteria to humans. It catalyzes the pre-step reaction for ß-oxidation of fatty acids or can be incorporated in phospholipids.
