acetyl-CoA carboxylase

acetyl-CoA carboxylase
ac·e·tyl-CoA car·box·yl·ase (asґə-təl-) (as″ə-tēlґko-aґ kahr-bokґsə-lās) [EC] a biotin-containing enzyme of the ligase class that catalyzes the carboxylation of acetyl coenzyme A to form malonyl coenzyme A. The reaction is the key rate-controlling step in the synthesis of fatty acids from acetyl groups, and the enzyme requires citrate or isocitrate for activity.
