In enzymology, a [myelin-proteolipid] O-palmitoyltransferase (EC 188.8.131.52) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reactionpalmitoyl-CoA + [myelin proteolipid]
Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are palmitoyl-CoA and myelin proteolipid, whereas its two products are CoA and O-palmitoyl-myelin proteolipid.
This enzyme belongs to the family of transferases, specifically those acyltransferases transferring groups other than aminoacyl groups. The systematic name of this enzyme class is palmitoyl-CoA:[myelin-proteolipid] O-palmitoyltransferase. Other names in common use include myelin PLP acyltransferase, acyl-protein synthetase, and myelin-proteolipid O-palmitoyltransferase.
