ENZYME entry: EC 1.3.8.7

Accepted Name
Medium-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase.
Alternative Name(s)
Acyl CoA dehydrogenase.
Acyl coenzyme A dehydrogenase.
Acyl dehydrogenase.
Fatty acyl coenzyme A dehydrogenase.
Fatty-acyl-CoA dehydrogenase.
General acyl CoA dehydrogenase.
Reaction catalysed
A medium-chain acyl-CoA + electron-transfer flavoprotein <=> a medium-chain trans-2,3-dehydroacyl-CoA + reduced electron-transfer flavoprotein
Comment(s)
  • One of several enzymes that catalyze the first step in fatty acids beta-oxidation.
  • The enzyme from pig liver can accept substrates with acyl chain lengths of 4 to 16 carbon atoms, but is most active with C(8) to C(12) compounds.
  • The enzyme from rat does not accept C(16) at all and is most active with C(6)-C(8) compounds.
  • cf. EC 1.3.8.1, EC 1.3.8.8 and EC 1.3.8.9.
  • Formerly EC 1.3.2.2 and EC 1.3.99.3.
