ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
2-oxoglutarate synthase.
Alternative Name(s)
2-ketoglutarate ferredoxin oxidoreductase.
2-oxoglutarate ferredoxin oxidoreductase.
Alpha-ketoglutarate synthase.
Alpha-ketoglutarate-ferredoxin oxidoreductase.
Reaction catalysed
2-oxoglutarate + CoA + 2 oxidized ferredoxin <=> succinyl-CoA + CO(2) + 2 reduced ferredoxin + 2 H(+)
Iron-sulfur; Thiamine diphosphate.
  • Highly specific for 2-oxoglutarate.
  • This enzyme is a member of the 2-oxoacid oxidoreductases, a family of enzymes that oxidatively decarboxylate different 2-oxoacids to form their CoA derivatives, and are differentiated based on their substrate specificity.
  • For examples of other members of this family, see EC and EC
  • Formerly EC
