In enzymology, a glutaconate CoA-transferase (EC 18.104.22.168) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction
- acetyl-CoA + (E)-glutaconate acetate + glutaconyl-1-CoA
Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are acetyl-CoA and (E)-glutaconate, whereas its two products are acetate and glutaconyl-1-CoA.
This enzyme belongs to the family of transferases, specifically the CoA-transferases. The systematic name of this enzyme class is acetyl-CoA:(E)-glutaconate CoA-transferase. This enzyme participates in styrene degradation and butanoate metabolism.
