ENZYME entry: EC 4.1.2.63

Accepted Name
2-hydroxyacyl-CoA lyase.
Alternative Name(s)
2-HPCL.
2-hydroxyphytanoyl-CoA lyase.
Reaction catalysed
  • A 2-hydroxy-3-methyl-C(n)-fatty-acyl-CoA <=> a 2-methyl-branched C(n-1)-fatty aldehyde + formyl-CoA
  • A (2R)-2-hydroxy-C(n)-long-chain fatty acyl-CoA <=> a C(n-1)-long-chain fatty aldehyde + formyl-CoA
Cofactor(s)
Mg(2+); Thiamine diphosphate.
Comment(s)
  • This peroxisomal enzyme, found in animals, is involved in the alpha- oxidation of 3-methyl-branched fatty acids like phytanic acid and the shortening of 2-hydroxy long-chain fatty acids.
  • Formerly EC 4.1.2.n2.
