EC 2.3.1.221     
Accepted name: noranthrone synthase
Reaction: 7 malonyl-CoA + hexanoyl-[acyl-carrier protein] = 7 CoA + norsolorinic acid anthrone + [acyl-carrier protein] + 7 CO2 + 2 H2O

Glossary: norsolorinic acid anthrone = noranthrone = 2-hexanoyl-1,3,6,8-tetrahydroxyanthracen-9(10H)-one
Other name(s): polyketide synthase A (ambiguous); PksA (ambiguous); norsolorinic acid anthrone synthase
Systematic name: malonyl-CoA:hexanoate malonyltransferase (norsolorinic acid anthrone-forming)
Comments: A multi-domain polyketide synthase involved in the synthesis of aflatoxins in the fungus Aspergillus parasiticus. The hexanoyl starter unit is provided to the acyl-carrier protein (ACP) domain by a dedicated fungal fatty acid synthase [1].
