       acetate CoA-transferase
IUBMB Comments
The enzyme belongs to family I of CoA-transferases, which operate with a ping-pong kinetic mechanism. The reaction takes place in two half-reactions and involves the formation of a CoA thioester intermediate with a glutamate residue. Unlike EC, butyrate---acetoacetate CoA-transferase, this enzyme exhibits maximal activity using acetate as the CoA acceptor. Substrate range depends on the specific enzyme. Typical substrates include butanoyl-CoA and pentanoyl-CoA.
