ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Propionyl-CoA C(2)-trimethyltridecanoyltransferase.
Alternative Name(s)
3-oxopristanoyl-CoA hydrolase.
3-oxopristanoyl-CoA thiolase.
Reaction catalysed
4,8,12-trimethyltridecanoyl-CoA + propanoyl-CoA <=> 3-oxopristanoyl-CoA + CoA
  • The peroxisomal protein sterol carrier protein X (SCPx) combines this thiolase activity with its carrier function, and is involved in branched chain fatty acid beta-oxidation in peroxisomes.
  • It also acts on 3-oxopalmitoyl-CoA as a substrate but differs from EC which has little activity toward the 3-oxoacyl-CoA esters of 2-methyl-branched chain fatty acids such as 3-oxopristanoyl-CoA.
