ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Very-long-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase.
Reaction catalysed
A very-long-chain acyl-CoA + electron-transfer flavoprotein <=> a very-long-chain trans-2,3-dehydroacyl-CoA + reduced electron-transfer flavoprotein
  • One of several enzymes that catalyze the first step in fatty acids beta-oxidation.
  • The enzyme is most active toward long-chain acyl-CoAs such as C(14), C(16) and C(18), but is also active with very-long-chain acyl-CoAs up to 24 carbons.
  • It shows no activity for substrates of less than 12 carbons.
  • It's specific activity toward palmitoyl-CoA is more than 10-fold that of the long-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase.
  • cf. EC, EC and EC
  • Formerly EC
