IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: 5-hydroxypentanoate CoA-transferase

Reaction: acetyl-CoA + 5-hydroxypentanoate = acetate + 5-hydroxypentanoyl-CoA

Other name(s): 5-hydroxyvalerate CoA-transferase; 5-hydroxyvalerate coenzyme A transferase

Systematic name: acetyl-CoA:5-hydroxypentanoate CoA-transferase

Comments: Propanoyl-CoA, acetyl-CoA, butanoyl-CoA and some other acyl-CoAs can act as substrates, but more slowly than 5-hydroxypentanoyl-CoA.
