Entry
EC 2.3.1.155                Enzyme                                 

Name
acetyl-CoA C-myristoyltransferase
Class
Transferases;
Acyltransferases;
Transferring groups other than aminoacyl groups
BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
myristoyl-CoA:acetyl-CoA C-myristoyltransferase
Reaction(IUBMB)
myristoyl-CoA + acetyl-CoA = CoA + 3-oxopalmitoyl-CoA [RN:R03991]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
myristoyl-CoA [CPD:C02593];
acetyl-CoA [CPD:C00024]
Product
CoA [CPD:C00010];
3-oxopalmitoyl-CoA [CPD:C05259]
Comment
A peroxisomal enzyme involved in branched chain fatty acid beta-oxidation in peroxisomes. It differs from EC 2.3.1.154 (propionyl-CoA C2-trimethyldecanoyltransferase) in not being active towards 3-oxopristanoyl-CoA.
History
EC 2.3.1.155 created 2000
