Accepted name: methylisocitrate lyase
Reaction: (2S,3R)-3-hydroxybutane-1,2,3-tricarboxylate = succinate + pyruvate
Glossary: (2S,3R)-2-methylisocitrate = (2S,3R)-3-hydroxybutane-1,2,3-tricarboxylate = threo-Ds-2-methylisocitrate
Other name(s): 2-methylisocitrate lyase; MICL; (2S,3R)-3-hydroxybutane-1,2,3-tricarboxylate pyruvate-lyase
Systematic name: (2S,3R)-3-hydroxybutane-1,2,3-tricarboxylate pyruvate-lyase (succinate-forming)
Comments: The enzyme acts on threo-Ds-2-methylisocitrate, but not on threo-Ds-isocitrate, threo-DL-isocitrate or erythro-Ls-isocitrate.
