ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
phenylsuccinyl-CoA transferase.
Reaction catalysed
  • phenylsuccinate + succinyl-CoA <=> 2-phenylsuccinyl-CoA + succinate
  • phenylsuccinate + succinyl-CoA <=> 3-phenylsuccinyl-CoA + succinate
  • The enzyme, characterized from the bacterium Aromatoleum aromaticum, is involved in degradation of (indol-3-yl)acetate, where it is believed to function on (2-aminophenyl)succinate.
  • It has a broad substrate specificity toward other C-4 dicarboxylic acids, phenylacetate, and the non-physiological compound 2-naphthylacetate.
  • The enzyme produces 2- and 3-phenylsuccinyl-CoA in equimolar amounts.
  • It can also perform an intramolecular transfer of the CoA moiety to convert 2-phenylsuccinyl-CoA to 3-phenylsuccinyl-CoA.
