EC 2.3.1.288     
Accepted name: 2-O-sulfo trehalose long-chain-acyltransferase
Reaction: (1) stearoyl-CoA + 2-O-sulfo-α,α-trehalose = 2-O-sulfo-2′-stearoyl-α,α-trehalose + CoA
(2) palmitoyl-CoA + 2-O-sulfo-α,α-trehalose = 2-O-sulfo-2′-palmitoyl-α,α-trehalose + CoA
Other name(s): papA2 (gene name)
Systematic name: acyl-CoA:2-O-sulfo-α,α-trehalose 2′-long-chain-acyltransferase
Comments: This mycobacterial enzyme catalyses the acylation of 2-O-sulfo-α,α-trehalose at the 2′ position by a C16 or C18 fatty acyl group during the biosynthesis of mycobacterial sulfolipids.
