Superfamily NAD(P)-binding Rossmann-like Domain
Functional Family Enoyl-[acyl-carrier-protein] reductase [NADH] FabI

Enzyme Information
Enoyl-[acyl-carrier-protein] reductase (NADH).
based on mapping to UniProt Q6TEI5
An acyl-[acyl-carrier protein] + NAD(+) = a trans-2,3-dehydroacyl-[acyl- carrier protein] + NADH.
-!- The enzyme catalyzes an essential step in fatty acid biosynthesis, the reduction of the 2,3-double bond in enoyl-acyl-[acyl-carrier- protein] derivatives of the elongating fatty acid moiety. -!- The enzyme from the bacterium Escherichia coli accepts substrates with carbon chain length from 4 to 18. -!- The enzyme from the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis prefers substrates with carbon chain length from 12 to 24 carbons.
