Candida tropicalis enoyl thioester reductase Etr1p and the Saccharomyces cerevisiae homologue Mrf1p catalyse the NADPH-dependent reduction of trans-2-enoyl thioesters in mitochondrial fatty acid synthesis (FAS). Unlike prokaryotic enoyl thioester reductases (ETRs), which belong to the short-chain dehydrogenases/reductases (SDR), Etr1p and Mrf1p represent structurally distinguishable ETRs that belong to the medium-chain dehydrogenases/reductases (MDR) superfamily, indicating independent origin… CONTINUE READING
