E.coli (83333)

Genome localization

-[945870 ],


Catalyses the reduction of enoyl-acyl-[acyl-carrier-protein] derivatives of carbon chain length from 4 to 16.

Rate-limiting Description

"Among them, FabI is an enoyl-ACP reductase which catalyzes the final and rate-limiting step of bacterial FAS." (17095231)

"coli strains with the hybrid FAS system unexpectedly revealed that enoyl-ACP reductase catalyses a rate-limiting step in the elongation of unsaturated fatty acids." (8075395)
