In enzymology, a glutaconate CoA-transferase (EC 2.8.3.12) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

acetyl-CoA + (E)-glutaconate \rightleftharpoons 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.
