Accepted name: oxaloacetate decarboxylase
Reaction: oxaloacetate = pyruvate + CO2
Other name(s): oxaloacetate β-decarboxylase; oxalacetic acid decarboxylase; oxalate β-decarboxylase; oxaloacetate carboxy-lyase
Systematic name: oxaloacetate carboxy-lyase (pyruvate-forming)
Comments: The enzyme from Klebsiella aerogenes is a biotinyl protein and also decarboxylates glutaconyl-CoA and methylmalonyl-CoA. The process is accompanied by the extrusion of two sodium ions from cells. Some animal enzymes require Mn2+.
