Accepted name: lyso-ornithine lipid O-acyltransferase
Reaction: a lyso-ornithine lipid + an acyl-[acyl-carrier protein] = an ornithine lipid + a holo-[acyl-carrier protein]
Glossary: a lyso-ornithine lipid = an Nα-[(3R)-3-hydroxyacyl]-L-ornithine
an ornithine lipid = an Nα-[(3R)-3-(acyloxy)acyl]-L-ornithine
Other name(s): olsA (gene name)
Systematic name: Nα-[(3R)-hydroxy-acyl]-L-ornithine O-acyltransferase
Comments: This bacterial enzyme catalyses the second step in the formation of ornithine lipids.
