FunFam 21: Lipid A deacylase

There are 1 EC terms in this cluster

Please note: EC annotations are assigned to the full protein sequence rather than individual protein domains. Since a given protein can contain multiple domains, it is possible that some of the annotations below come from additional domains that occur in the same protein, but have been classified elsewhere in CATH.

Note: The search results have been sorted with the annotations that are found most frequently at the top of the list. The results can be filtered by typing text into the search box at the top of the table.

EC Term Annotations Evidence
Acyloxyacyl hydrolase. [EC:]
3-(acyloxy)acyl group of bacterial toxin = 3-hydroxyacyl group of bacterial toxin + a fatty acid.
  • The substrate is lipid A on the reducing end of the toxic lipopolysaccharide (LPS) of Salmonella typhimurium and related organisms.
  • It consists of diglucosamine, beta-D-GlcN-(1->6)-D-GlcN, attached by glycosylation on O-6 of its non-reducing residue, phosphorylated on O-4 of this residue and on O-1 of its potentially reducing residue.
  • Both residues carry 3-(acyloxy)acyl groups on N-2 and O-3.
  • The enzyme from human leukocytes detoxifies the lipid by hydrolyzing the secondary acyl groups from O-3 of the 3-hydroxyacyl groups on the disaccharide (LPS).
  • It also possesses a wide range of phospholipase and acyltransferase activities (e.g. EC, EC, EC and EC, hydrolyzing diacylglycerol and phosphatidyl compounds, but not triacylglycerols.
  • It has a preference for saturated C(12)-C(16) acyl groups.
