Genome localization

-[855750 ],


A biotinyl-protein. Also catalyses transcarboxylation; the plant enzyme also carboxylates propanonyl-CoA and butanoyl-CoA.

Rate-limiting Description

"We report that mutants with conditional defects in the rate-limiting enzyme of fatty acid synthesis, acetyl coenzyme A carboxylase (ACC1), display unusually multilobed vacuoles, similar to those observed in vac8 mutant cells." (10757783)
