ENZYME entry: EC 4.1.1.72

Accepted Name
Branched-chain-2-oxoacid decarboxylase.
Alternative Name(s)
(3S)-3-methyl-2-oxopentanoate carboxy-lyase.
Reaction catalysed
(3S)-3-methyl-2-oxopentanoate <=> 2-methylbutanal + CO(2)
Comment(s)
  • Acts on a number of 2-oxo acids, with a high affinity toward branched-chain substrates.
  • The aldehyde formed may be enzyme-bound, and may be an intermediate in the bacterial system for biosynthesis of branched-chain fatty acids.
