Accepted name: oleoyl-[acyl-carrier-protein] hydrolase
Reaction: an oleoyl-[acyl-carrier protein] + H2O = an [acyl-carrier protein] + oleate
Other name(s): acyl-[acyl-carrier-protein] hydrolase; acyl-ACP-hydrolase; acyl-acyl carrier protein hydrolase; oleoyl-ACP thioesterase; oleoyl-acyl carrier protein thioesterase; oleoyl-[acyl-carrier-protein] hydrolase
Systematic name: oleoyl-[acyl-carrier protein] hydrolase
Comments: Acts on acyl-carrier-protein thioesters of fatty acids from C12 to C18, but the derivative of oleic acid is hydrolysed much more rapidly than any other compound tested.
