IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name:
long-chain-enoyl-CoA hydratase
Other name:
long-chain enoyl coenzyme A hydratase
Systematic name:
long-chain-(3S)-3-hydroxyacyl-CoA hydro-lyase



Acts in the reverse direction. The best substrate is oct-3-enoyl-CoA. Unlike EC enoyl-CoA hydratase, it does not act on crotonoyl-CoA.
