EC 18.104.22.168 - 2-methylcitrate dehydratase
IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
17725 [IUBMB](2S,3S)-2-methylcitrate(2S,3S)-2-methylcitrateName origin: UniProt - CHECKED (C)Formula: C7H7O7
Charge: -3ChEBI compound status: CHECKED (C)=2-methyl-cis-aconitate2-methyl-cis-aconitateName origin: UniProt - CHECKED (C)Formula: C7H5O6
Charge: -3ChEBI compound status: CHECKED (C)
The enzyme is specific for (2S,3S)-methylcitrate, showing no activity with (2R,3S)-methylcitrate . The enzyme can also use cis-aconitate as a substrate but more slowly . Both this enzyme and EC 22.214.171.124, aconitate hydratase, are required to complete the isomerization of (2S,3S)-methylcitrate to (2R,3S)-2-methylisocitrate .
