IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


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

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

Other name(s): medium-chain acyl coenzyme A hydrolase; medium-chain acyl-CoA hydrolase; medium-chain acyl-thioester hydrolase; medium-chain hydrolase; myristoyl-CoA thioesterase

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

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