Tree number(s): D12.776.157.050
RDF Unique Identifier: https://id.nlm.nih.gov/mesh/D000213
Scope note: Consists of a polypeptide chain and 4'-phosphopantetheine linked to a serine residue by a phosphodiester bond. Acyl groups are bound as thiol esters to the pantothenyl group. Acyl carrier protein is involved in every step of fatty acid synthesis by the cytoplasmic system.
