EC 2.8.3.9     
Accepted name: butyrate—acetoacetate CoA-transferase
Reaction: butanoyl-CoA + acetoacetate = butanoate + acetoacetyl-CoA
Other name(s): butyryl coenzyme A-acetoacetate coenzyme A-transferase; butyryl-CoA-acetoacetate CoA-transferase
Systematic name: butanoyl-CoA:acetoacetate CoA-transferase
Comments: Butanoate, acetoacetate and their CoA thioesters are the preferred substrates, but the enzyme also acts, more slowly, on the derivatives of a number of C2 to C6 monocarboxylic acids.
