Accepted name: carnitine O-octanoyltransferase
Reaction: octanoyl-CoA + L-carnitine = CoA + L-octanoylcarnitine
Other name(s): medium-chain/long-chain carnitine acyltransferase; carnitine medium-chain acyltransferase; easily solubilized mitochondrial carnitine palmitoyltransferase; overt mitochondrial carnitine palmitoyltransferase
Systematic name: octanoyl-CoA:L-carnitine O-octanoyltransferase
Comments: Acts on a range of acyl-CoAs, with optimal activity with C6 or C8 acyl groups. cf. EC (carnitine O-acetyltransferase) and EC (carnitine O-palmitoyltransferase).
