Accepted name: long-chain-fatty-acid—luciferin-component ligase
Reaction: ATP + a long-chain fatty acid + protein = AMP + diphosphate + an acyl-protein thioester
Other name(s): acyl-protein synthetase
Systematic name: long-chain-fatty-acid:protein ligase (AMP-forming)
Comments: Together with EC long-chain-fatty-acyl-CoA reductase, enzyme forms a fatty acid reductase system that produces the substrate of EC alkanal monooxygenase (FMN-linked), thus being a component of the bacterial luciferase system.
