ENZYME: 2.8.3.15


ID   2.8.3.15
DE   Succinyl-CoA:(R)-benzylsuccinate CoA-transferase.
AN   Benzylsuccinate CoA-transferase.
CA   Succinyl-CoA + (R)-2-benzylsuccinate = succinate + (R)-2-benzylsuccinyl-
CA   CoA.
CC   -!- Involved in anaerobic catabolism of toluene and is a strictly
CC       toluene-induced enzyme that catalyzes the reversible regio- and
CC       enantio-selective synthesis of (R)-2-benzylsuccinyl-CoA.
CC   -!- The enzyme from Thauera aromatica is inactive when (R)-
CC       benzylsuccinate is replaced by (S)-benzylsuccinate.
