"Acyltransferases" in context

Acyltransferases are a superfamily of enzymes that catalyze the transfer of an acyl group from one molecule to another molecule. These enzymes are present in all living organisms and involved in a huge range of biochemical processes, such as fatty acid metabolism and the synthesis of steroids, hormones, vitamins and other biologically important molecules. They are divided into two subfamilies, which are thioesterases and alcohol acyltransferases. Thioesterases transfer an acyl group from an acyl-CoA molecule to an alcohol group, and alcohol acyltransferases transfer an acyl group from an acyl donating molecule to an alcohol group.
