Abstract Methylmalonyl-CoA epimerase (MMCE) is an essential enzyme in the breakdown of odd-numbered fatty acids and of the amino acids valine, isoleucine, and methionine. Present in many bacteria and in animals, it catalyzes the conversion of (2R)-methylmalonyl-CoA to (2S)-methylmalonyl-CoA, the substrate for the B12-dependent enzyme, methylmalonyl-CoA mutase. Defects in this pathway can result in severe acidosis and cause damage to the central nervous system in humans.
