|SMART accession number:||SM00822
||This enzymatic domain is part of bacterial polyketide synthases and catalyses the first step in the reductive modification of the beta-carbonyl centres in the growing polyketide chain. It uses NADPH to reduce the keto group to a hydroxy group.|
|Interpro abstract (IPR020842):
||This domain is found in a number polyketide and fatty acid synthases that catalyse the first step in the reductive modification of the beta-carbonyl centres in the growing chain. It uses NADPH to reduce the keto group to a hydroxy group.
