long-chain-fatty-acid:protein ligase (AMP-forming)
Together with a hydrolase component (EC and a reductase component (EC, this enzyme forms a multienzyme fatty acid reductase complex that produces the long-chain aldehyde substrate of the bacterial luciferase enzyme (EC The enzyme activates free long-chain fatty acids, generated by the action of the transferase component, forming a fatty acyl-AMP intermediate, followed by the transfer of the acyl group to an internal L-cysteine residue. It then transfers the acyl group to EC, long-chain acyl-protein thioester reductase.
