ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Acetate CoA-transferase.
Reaction catalysed
Acyl-CoA + acetate <=> a fatty acid anion + acetyl-CoA
  • The enzyme belongs to family I of CoA-transferases, which operate with a ping-pong kinetic mechanism.
  • The reaction takes place in two half-reactions and involves the formation of a CoA thioester intermediate with a glutamate residue.
  • Unlike EC, this enzyme exhibits maximal activity using acetate as the CoA acceptor.
  • Substrate range depends on the specific enzyme.
  • Typical substrates include butanoyl-CoA and pentanoyl-CoA.
