|Fluoroacetyl-CoA + H(2)O <=> fluoroacetate + CoA|
- Fluoroacetate is extremely toxic.
- It reacts with CoA to form fluoroacetyl-CoA, which substitutes for
acetyl CoA and reacts with EC 184.108.40.206 to produce fluorocitrate,
a metabolite of which binds very tightly to EC 220.127.116.11 and halts the
- This enzyme hydrolyzes fluoroacetyl-CoA before it can react with
citrate synthase, and thus confers fluoroacetate resistance on the
organisms that produce it.
- It has been described in the poisonous plant Dichapetalum cymosum and
the bacterium Streptomyces cattleya, both of which are fluoroacetate
