Protein EntryACP1_ARATH
UniProt IDQ0WT41
Comment typeDescription
FunctionCarrier of the growing fatty acid chain in fatty acid biosynthesis. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:11553750}.
MiscellaneousPlants over-expressing ACP1 show altered composition of fatty acids, with significant decrease in levels of hexadecatrienoic acid (16:3) and increase in linolenate (18:3) content. {ECO:0000305|PubMed:11553750}.
Ptm4'-phosphopantetheine is transferred from CoA to a specific serine of apo-ACP by acpS. This modification is essential for activity because fatty acids are bound in thioester linkage to the sulfhydryl of the prosthetic group (By similarity). {ECO:0000250}.
SimilarityContains 1 acyl carrier domain. {ECO:0000305}.
Subcellular LocationPlastid, chloroplast.
