2-decylhomocitrate synthase;
3-hydroxytetradecane-1,3,4-tricarboxylate 2-oxoglutarate-lyase (CoA-acylating)
Class

Acyltransferases;
Acyl groups converted into alkyl groups on transfer
BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
dodecanoyl-CoA:2-oxoglutarate C-dodecanoyltransferase (thioester-hydrolysing, 1-carboxyundecyl-forming)
Reaction(IUBMB)
dodecanoyl-CoA + H2O + 2-oxoglutarate = (3S,4S)-3-hydroxytetradecane-1,3,4-tricarboxylate + CoA [RN:R03859]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
dodecanoyl-CoA [CPD:C01832];
H2O [CPD:C00001];
2-oxoglutarate [CPD:C00026]
Product
(3S,4S)-3-hydroxytetradecane-1,3,4-tricarboxylate [CPD:C04529];
CoA [CPD:C00010]
Comment
Decanoyl-CoA can act instead of dodecanoyl-CoA, but 2-oxoglutarate cannot be replaced by oxaloacetate or pyruvate.
History
EC 2.3.3.4 created 1976 as EC 4.1.3.29, transferred 2002 to EC 2.3.3.4
