Together with a hydrolase component (EC and EC and a synthetase component (EC, this enzyme forms a multienzyme fatty acid reductase complex that produces the long-chain aldehyde substrate of the bacterial luciferase enzyme (EC The enzyme is acylated by receiving an acyl group from EC, and catalyses the reduction of the acyl group, releasing the aldehyde product. The enzyme is also able to accept the acyl group from a long-chain acyl-CoA.

The expected taxonomic range for this enzyme is: Bacteria, Eukaryota, Archaea

acyl-coa reductase, fatty acyl-coa reductase 1, amfar1, acyl coenzyme a reductase, fatty acyl-coa reductase 2, fatty acyl-coa reductase 6, more

a long-chain aldehyde + [protein]-L-cysteine + NADP+ = a [protein]-S-(long-chain fatty acyl)-L-cysteine + NADPH + H+

together with EC forms a fatty acid reductase system which produces the substrate of EC, thus being a part of the bacterial luciferase system
