PDB File|ESTHER: header of PDB entry RCSB: Full entry
Burger et al. show that Acyl-protein thioesterase structures present a long tunnel for accommodation of long-chain fatty acids and release the product by use of a flexible loop tunnel lid. Homologous deacetylases use a hydrophobic residue to fix the lid and another residue to close the tunnel entrance. This causes loop rigidity changing the catalytic preference to deacetylation. ZmB6T1C9 as its paralogue in Arabidopsis At5G20060 is an acylprotein thioesterase and not an protein deacetylase
