UniProt IDP39435
PDB Structure1B3N; 1KAS; 2GFV; 2GFW; 2GFX; 2GFY; 3G0Y; 2GP6.    
FunctionCatalyzes the condensation reaction of fatty acid synthesis by the addition to an acyl acceptor of two carbons from malonyl-acp. Has a preference for short chain acid substrates and may function to supply the octanoic substrates for lipoic acid biosynthese.    
InhibitorLauric Acid[4]
