ENZYME entry: EC 2.8.3.15

Accepted Name
Succinyl-CoA:(R)-benzylsuccinate CoA-transferase.
Alternative Name(s)
Benzylsuccinate CoA-transferase.
Reaction catalysed
Succinyl-CoA + (R)-2-benzylsuccinate <=> succinate + (R)-2-benzylsuccinyl-CoA
Comment(s)
  • Involved in anaerobic catabolism of toluene and is a strictly toluene-induced enzyme that catalyzes the reversible regio- and enantio-selective synthesis of (R)-2-benzylsuccinyl-CoA.
  • The enzyme from Thauera aromatica is inactive when (R)- benzylsuccinate is replaced by (S)-benzylsuccinate.
