KEGG   ENZYME: 3.1.1.67Help
Entry
EC 3.1.1.67                 Enzyme                                 

Name
fatty-acyl-ethyl-ester synthase;
FAEES
Class
Hydrolases;
Acting on ester bonds;
Carboxylic-ester hydrolases
BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
long-chain-fatty-acyl-ethyl-ester acylhydrolase
Reaction(IUBMB)
a long-chain-fatty-acyl ethyl ester + H2O = a long-chain-fatty acid + ethanol [RN:R02682]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
long-chain-fatty-acyl ethyl ester [CPD:C04202];
H2O [CPD:C00001]
Product
long-chain-fatty acid;
ethanol [CPD:C00469]
Comment
The reaction, forms ethyl esters from fatty acids and ethanol in the absence of coenzyme A or ATP. Best substrates are unsaturated octadecanoic acids; palmitate, stearate and arachidonate also act, but more slowly.
