ENZYME entry: EC 2.8.3.24

Accepted Name
(R)-2-hydroxy-4-methylpentanoate CoA-transferase.
Reaction catalysed
4-methylpentanoyl-CoA + (R)-2-hydroxy-4-methylpentanoate <=> 4-methylpentanoate + (R)-2-hydroxy-4-methylpentanoyl-CoA
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme, characterized from the bacterium Peptoclostridium difficile, participates in an L-leucine fermentation pathway.
  • The reaction proceeds via formation of a covalent anhydride intermediate between a conserved aspartate residue and the acyl group of the CoA thioester substrate.
