Multienzyme complexes

Definition

Multienzyme complexes are stable assemblies of more than one enzyme, generally involved in sequential catalytic transformations. These are distinct from a multienzyme polypeptide, in which multiple catalytic domains are found in a single polypeptide chain. Fatty-acyl-CoA Synthase is an example of six enzymes that assemble in a barrel shape to generate fatty acids.
