EC 6.2.1.15     
Accepted name: arachidonate—CoA ligase
Reaction: ATP + arachidonate + CoA = AMP + diphosphate + arachidonoyl-CoA
Glossary: arachidonate = (all-Z)-icosa-5,8,11,14-tetraenoate
Other name(s): arachidonoyl-CoA synthetase
Systematic name: arachidonate:CoA ligase (AMP-forming)
Comments: Not identical with EC 6.2.1.3 long-chain-fatty-acid—CoA ligase. Icosa-8,11,14-trienoate, but not the other long-chain fatty acids, can act in place of arachidonate.
