Polyketide synthase and non-ribosomal peptide synthetase thioesterase selectivity: logic gate or a victim of fate?


Type 1, α/β hydrolase-like thioesterase (TE) domains are essential offloading enzymes, releasing covalently bound products from fatty acid, polyketide, and non-ribosomal peptide biosynthetic complexes. The release step can occur by attack of an exogenous nucleophile effecting hydrolysis or transesterification or by an intramolecular O-, N-, or C-nucleophile… (More)
