EC 2.3.1.122     
Accepted name: trehalose O-mycolyltransferase
Reaction: 2 α,α-trehalose 6-mycolate = α,α-trehalose + α,α-trehalose 6,6′-bismycolate
Other name(s): α,α’-trehalose 6-monomycolate:α,α’-trehalose mycolyltransferase; α,α’-trehalose-6-mycolate:α,α’-trehalose-6-mycolate 6′-mycolyltransferase
Systematic name: α,α-trehalose-6-mycolate:α,α-trehalose-6-mycolate 6′-mycolyltransferase
Comments: Catalyses the exchange of mycolic acid between trehalose, trehalose mycolate and trehalose bismycolate. Trehalose 6-palmitate can also act as donor.
