Comment(s)
  • Highly specific for 2-oxoglutarate.
  • This enzyme is a member of the 2-oxoacid oxidoreductases, a family of enzymes that oxidatively decarboxylate different 2-oxoacids to form their CoA derivatives, and are differentiated based on their substrate specificity.
  • For examples of other members of this family, see EC 1.2.7.1 and EC 1.2.7.7.
  • Formerly EC 1.2.7.9.
