KEGG   ENZYME: 6.2.1.15Help
Entry
EC 6.2.1.15                 Enzyme                                 

Name
arachidonate---CoA ligase;
arachidonoyl-CoA synthetase
Class
Ligases;
Forming carbon-sulfur bonds;
Acid-thiol ligases
BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
arachidonate:CoA ligase (AMP-forming)
Reaction(IUBMB)
ATP + arachidonate + CoA = AMP + diphosphate + arachidonoyl-CoA [RN:R01598]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
ATP [CPD:C00002];
arachidonate [CPD:C00219];
CoA [CPD:C00010]
Product
AMP [CPD:C00020];
diphosphate [CPD:C00013];
arachidonoyl-CoA [CPD:C02249]
Comment
Not identical with EC 6.2.1.3 long-chain-fatty-acid---CoA ligase. Icosa-8,11,14-trienoate, but not the other long-chain fatty acids, can act in place of arachidonate.
History
EC 6.2.1.15 created 1984
