Enzyme Commission Primary Name: oleoyl-[acyl-carrier-protein] hydrolase

Enzyme Commission Synonyms: acyl-[acyl-carrier-protein] hydrolase, acyl-ACP-hydrolase, acyl-acyl carrier protein hydrolase, oleoyl-ACP thioesterase, oleoyl-acyl carrier protein thioesterase, oleoyl-[acyl-carrier-protein] hydrolase

Standard Gibbs Free Energy (ΔrG in kcal/mol): 303.82648Inferred by computational analysis [Latendresse13]

Enzyme Commission Summary:
Acts on acyl-carrier-protein thioesters of fatty acids from C12 to C18, but the derivative of oleic acid is hydrolysed much more rapidly than any other compound tested.
