We report here the identification, characterization, and expression of a novel rat acyl-CoA synthetase (ACS) designated as ACS5. ACS5 consists of 683 amino acids and is approximately 60% identical to the previously characterized ACS1 and ACS2. ACS5 was overproduced in Escherichia coli cells and then purified to near homogeneity. The purified enzyme utilized a wide range of saturated fatty acids similar to those utilized by ACS1 and ACS2, but differed in its preference for C16-C18 unsaturated… CONTINUE READING
