Family relationships


Malate synthase (EC: catalyses the aldol condensation of glyoxylate with acetyl-CoA to form malate as part of the second step of the glyoxylate bypass and an alternative to the tricarboxylic acid cycle in bacteria, fungi and plants. Malate synthase has a TIM beta/alpha-barrel fold [PMID: 10715138].
