IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
EC 2.8.3.23

Names

Accepted name:
caffeate CoA-transferase
Other name:
CarA
Systematic name:
3-(3,4-dihydroxyphenyl)propanoyl-CoA:(2E)-3-(3,4-dihydroxyphenyl)prop-2-enoate CoA-transferase

Reaction

Comments:

The enzyme, isolated from the bacterium Acetobacterium woodii, catalyses an energy-saving CoA loop for caffeate activation. In addition to caffeate, the enzyme can utilize 4-coumarate or ferulate as CoA acceptor.
