The structure of mammalian fatty acid synthase turned back to front

Research output: Contribution to journalShort survey

Abstract

On page 1667 of this issue, Stuart Smith and colleagues [1] demonstrate that the animal fatty acid synthase is a head-to-head dimer rather than the head-to-tail dimer depicted in textbooks. This has important ramifications for the mechanisms of other multifunctional enzymes such as polyketide synthases [2].
