physiological function
in Escherichia coli, production of propionic acid through the sbm operon requires the activity of a methylmalonyl-CoA epimerase. Expression of MCE finally leads to production of propionic acid from glucose
physiological function
methylmalonyl-CoA epimerase and methylmalonyl-CoA mutase are responsible for producing succinyl-CoA from (S)-methylmalonyl-CoA. Succinyl-CoA is an intermediate connecting the 3-hydroxypropionate/4-hydroxybutyrate cycle and general carbon metabolism. Methylmalonyl-CoA epimerase and methylmalonyl-CoA mutase may also be involved in degradation of propionate and branched-chain amino acids (valine, isoleucine, methionine). The enzyme has a role in CO2 fixation; the enzyme is involved in the 3-hydroxypropionate/4-hydroxybutyrate carbon fixation pathway
physiological function
second step in the pathway responsible for the degradation of branched amino acids and odd chain fatty acids, MMCE participated in autotrophic CO2 fixation via the 3-hydroxypropionate pathway, in propionate fermentation, the regeneration of glyoxylate and in the biosynthesis of polyketide antibiotics
