ENZYME entry: EC 4.2.1.36

Accepted Name
Homoaconitate hydratase.
Alternative Name(s)
2-hydroxybutane-1,2,4-tricarboxylate hydro-lyase.
Cis-homoaconitase.
HACN.
Homoaconitase.
Reaction catalysed
(1R,2S)-1-hydroxybutane-1,2,4-tricarboxylate <=> (Z)-but-1-ene-1,2,4-tricarboxylate + H(2)O
Cofactor(s)
Iron-sulfur.
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme from the hyperthermophilic eubacterium Thermus thermophilus can catalyze the reaction shown above but cannot catalyze the previously described reaction, i.e. formation of homocitrate by hydration of cis-homoaconitate.
  • The enzyme responsible for the conversion of cis-homoaconitate into homocitrate in T.thermophilus is unknown at present but the reaction can be catalyzed in vitro using EC 4.2.1.3 from pig.
