ENZYME entry: EC 2.3.1.29

Accepted Name
Glycine C-acetyltransferase.
Alternative Name(s)
2-amino-3-ketobutyrate coenzyme A ligase.
Reaction catalysed
Acetyl-CoA + glycine <=> CoA + 2-amino-3-oxobutanoate
Cofactor(s)
Pyridoxal 5'-phosphate.
Comment(s)
  • Acts in concert with EC 1.1.1.103 in the degradation of threonine to form glycine.
  • This threonine degradation pathway is common to prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells and the two enzymes involved form a complex.
