Binding Site

Coenzyme A transferase binding site (IPR004163)

Short name: CoA_transf_BS


Coenzyme A (CoA) transferases belong to an evolutionary conserved [PMID: 1624453, PMID: 9325289] family of enzymes catalyzing the reversible transfer of CoA from one carboxylic acid to another. They have been identified in many prokaryotes and in mammalian tissues. The bacterial enzymes are heterodimer of two subunits (A and B) of about 25 Kd each while eukaryotic SCOT consist of a single chain which is colinear with the two bacterial subunits. This entry corresponds to a region in the N-terminal of the A subunit that may be implicated in the binding of CoA to the enzyme.
