Accepted name: malonate decarboxylase holo-[acyl-carrier protein] synthase

Other name(s): holo ACP synthase (ambiguous); 2'-(5"-triphosphoribosyl)-3'-dephospho-CoA:apo ACP 2'-(5"-triphosphoribosyl)-3'-dephospho-CoA transferase; MdcG; 2'-(5"-triphosphoribosyl)-3'-dephospho-CoA:apo-malonate-decarboxylase adenylyltransferase; holo-malonate-decarboxylase synthase (incorrect)

Systematic name: 2'-(5-triphosphoribosyl)-3'-dephospho-CoA:apo-malonate-decarboxylase 2'-(5-phosphoribosyl)-3'-dephospho-CoA-transferase

Comments: The δ subunit of malonate decarboxylase serves as an an acyl-carrier protein (ACP) and contains the cofactor 2'-(5-triphosphoribosyl)-3'-dephospho-CoA. Two reactions are involved in the production of the holo-ACP form of this enzyme. The first reaction is catalysed by EC, triphosphoribosyl-dephospho-CoA synthase. The resulting prosthetic group is then attached to the ACP subunit via a phosphodiester linkage to a serine residue, thus forming the holo form of the enzyme, in a manner analogous to that of EC, citrate lyase holo-[acyl-carrier protein] synthase.
