IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: [citrate (pro-3S)-lyase] ligase

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

Glossary: citrate = 2-hydroxypropane-1,2,3-tricarboxylate

Other name(s): citrate lyase ligase; citrate lyase synthetase; acetate: SH-[acyl-carrier-protein] enzyme ligase (AMP); acetate:HS-citrate lyase ligase; acetate:citrate-(pro-3S)-lyase(thiol-form) ligase (AMP-forming); acetate:[citrate-(pro-3S)-lyase](thiol-form) ligase (AMP-forming)

Systematic name: acetate:holo-[citrate-(pro-3S)-lyase] ligase (AMP-forming)

Comments: Both this enzyme and EC, deacetyl-[citrate-(pro-3S)-lyase] S-acetyltransferase, acetylate and activate EC, citrate (pro-3S)-lyase.
