Reaction: acetyl-CoA + oxalate = acetate + oxalyl-CoA
Other name(s): acetyl-coenzyme A transferase; acetyl-CoA oxalate CoA-transferase; ACOCT; YfdE; UctC
Systematic name: acetyl-CoA:oxalate CoA-transferase
Comments: The enzymes characterized from the bacteria Escherichia coli and Acetobacter aceti can also use formyl-CoA and oxalate (EC 188.8.131.52, formyl-CoA transferase) or formyl-CoA and acetate, with significantly reduced specific activities.
