IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: citrate lyase deacetylase

Reaction: acetyl-[citrate (pro-3S)-lyase] + H2O = holo-[citrate (pro-3S)-lyase] + acetate

Other name(s): [citrate-(pro-3S)-lyase] thiolesterase; acetyl-S-(acyl-carrier protein) enzyme thioester hydrolase; citrate lyase deacetylase; [citrate-(pro-3S)-lyase](acetyl-form) hydrolase

Systematic name: acetyl-[citrate-(pro-3S)-lyase] hydrolase

Comments: In the proteobacterium Rubrivivax gelatinosus, this enzyme modulates the activity of EC, citrate (pro-3S)-lyase, by converting it from its active acetyl form into its inactive thiol form by removal of its acetyl groups [2]. The activity of citrate-lyase deacetylase is itself inhibited by L-glutamate [2].
