Accepted name: 2-methylisocitrate dehydratase
Reaction: (2S,3R)-3-hydroxybutane-1,2,3-tricarboxylate = (Z)-but-2-ene-1,2,3-tricarboxylate + H2O
Glossary: cis-2-methylaconitate = (Z)-but-2-ene-1,2,3-tricarboxylate
(2S,3R)-2-methylisocitrate = (2S,3R)-3-hydroxybutane-1,2,3-tricarboxylate = threo-Ds-2-methylisocitrate
Other name(s): (2S,3R)-3-hydroxybutane-1,2,3-tricarboxylate hydro-lyase
Systematic name: (2S,3R)-3-hydroxybutane-1,2,3-tricarboxylate hydro-lyase [(Z)-but-2-ene-1,2,3-tricarboxylate-forming]
Comments: The enzyme from the fungus Yarrowia lipolytica (Saccharomycopsis) does not act on isocitrate.
