IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: ADP-dependent short-chain-acyl-CoA hydrolase

Reaction: acyl-CoA + H2O = CoA + a carboxylate

Other name(s): short-chain acyl coenzyme A hydrolase; propionyl coenzyme A hydrolase; propionyl-CoA hydrolase; propionyl-CoA thioesterase; short-chain acyl-CoA hydrolase; short-chain acyl-CoA thioesterase

Systematic name: ADP-dependent-short-chain-acyl-CoA hydrolase

Comments: Requires ADP; inhibited by NADH. Maximum activity is shown with propanoyl-CoA.
