EC 188.8.131.52 - Aconitate Δ-isomerase
IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
cis-Aconitate is used to designate the isomer (Z)-prop-1-ene-1,2,3-tricarboxylate. This isomerization could take place either in a direct cis-trans interconversion or by an allylic rearrangement; the enzyme has been shown to catalyse the latter change.
