IUBMB Comments
This enzyme completes each cycle of fatty acid elongation by catalysing the stereospecific reduction of the double bond at position 2 of a growing fatty acid chain, while linked to an acyl-carrier protein. It is one of the activities of EC, fatty-acid synthase system. The mammalian enzyme is Re-specific with respect to NADP+. cf. EC, enoyl-[acyl-carrier-protein] reductase (NADPH, Si-specific) and EC, enoyl-[acyl-carrier-protein] reductase (NADPH).
