EC 2.3.1.284     
Accepted name: 3′-(hydroxy)phthioceranyl-2′-palmitoyl(stearoyl)-2-O-sulfo-trehalose (hydroxy)phthioceranyltransferase
Reaction: 3 3′-(hydroxy)phthioceranyl-2′-palmitoyl(stearoyl)-2-O-sulfo-α,α-trehalose = 3,6,6′-tris-(hydroxy)phthioceranyl-2-palmitoyl(stearoyl)-2′-sulfo-α-alpha-trehalose + 2 2′-palmitoyl/stearoyl-2-O-sulfo-α,α-trehalose
Glossary: 3,6,6′-tris-(hydroxy)phthioceranyl-2-palmitoyl(stearoyl)-2′-sulfo-α-alpha-trehalose = a mycobacterial sulfolipid
Other name(s): chp1 (gene name)
Systematic name: 3′-(hydroxy)phthioceranyl-2′-palmitoyl(stearoyl)-2-O-sulfo-α,α-trehalose:3′-(hydroxy)phthioceranyl-2′-palmitoyl(stearoyl)-2-O-sulfo-α,α-trehalose 6,6′-di(hydroxy)phthioceranyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme, present in mycobacteria, catalyses the ultimate step in the biosynthesis of mycobacterial sulfolipids. It catalyses two successive transfers of a (hydroxy)phthioceranyl group from two diacylated intermediates to third diacylated intermediate, generating the tetraacylated sulfolipid.
