Abstract: The pathway for substrate transacylation between a fungal type I fatty acid synthase (FAS) and a nonreducing polyketide synthase (NR-PKS) was determined by in vitro reconstitution of dissected domains. System kinetics were influenced by domain dissections, and the FAS phosphopantetheinyl transferase (PPT) monodomain exhibited coenzyme A selectivity for the post-translational activation of the FAS acyl carrier protein (ACP).
