ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Enoyl-CoA hydratase 2.
Alternative Name(s)
2-enoyl-CoA hydratase 2.
D-3-hydroxyacyl-CoA hydro-lyase.
D-specific 2-trans-enoyl-CoA hydratase.
Reaction catalysed
(3R)-3-hydroxyacyl-CoA <=> (2E)-2-enoyl-CoA + H(2)O
  • This enzyme catalyzes a hydration step in peroxisomal beta-oxidation.
  • The human multifunctional enzyme type 2 (MFE-2) is a 79000 Da enzyme composed of three functional units: (3R)-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase, 2-enoyl-CoA hydratase 2 and sterol carrier protein 2-like units.
  • The enzymes from Aeromonas caviae and Arabidopsis thaliana are monofunctional enzymes.
  • 2-Enoyl-CoA hydratase 3 from Candida tropicalis is a part from multifunctional enzyme type 2.
