enzymology, a 2-methylcitrate synthase (EC number|22.214.171.124) is an enzymethat catalyzes the chemical reaction
:propanoyl-CoA + H2O + oxaloacetate (2R,3S)-2-hydroxybutane-1,2,3-tricarboxylate + CoA
This enzyme belongs to the family of
transferases, specifically those acyltransferasesthat convert acyl groups into alkyl groups on transfer. The systematic name of this enzyme class is propanoyl-CoA:oxaloacetate C-propanoyltransferase (thioester-hydrolysing, 1-carboxyethyl-forming). Other names in common use include 2-methylcitrate oxaloacetate-lyase, MCS, methylcitrate synthase, and methylcitrate synthetase. This enzyme participates in propanoate metabolism.
CAS registry numberfor this enzyme class is CAS registry|57827-78-8."
