ENZYME entry: EC 1.3.8.9

Accepted Name
very-long-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase.
Reaction catalysed
a very-long-chain 2,3-saturated fatty acyl-CoA + H(+) + oxidized [electron-transfer flavoprotein] <=> a very-long-chain (2E)-enoyl-CoA + reduced [electron-transfer flavoprotein]
Comment(s)
  • One of several enzymes that catalyze the first step in fatty acids beta-oxidation.
  • The enzyme is most active toward long-chain acyl-CoAs such as C14, C16 and C18, but is also active with very-long-chain acyl-CoAs up to 24 carbons.
  • It shows no activity for substrates of less than 12 carbons.
  • It's specific activity toward palmitoyl-CoA is more than 10-fold that of the long-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase.
  • cf. EC 1.3.8.1, EC 1.3.8.7 and EC 1.3.8.8.
  • Formerly EC 1.3.99.3.
