fatty-acid synthase activity

Known as: acyl-CoA:malonyl-CoA C-acyltransferase (decarboxylating, oxoacyl- and enoyl-reducing and thioester-hydrolysing), lovastatin nonaketide synthase activity, acyl-CoA:malonyl-CoA C-acyltransferase (decarboxylating, oxoacyl- and enoyl-reducing, thioester-hydrolysing) 
Catalysis of the reaction: S-adenosyl-L-methionine(1+) + acetyl-CoA + 18 H(+) + 8 malonyl-CoA + 11 NADPH = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + 8 CO(2) + 9… (More)
