Accepted name: 2-hydroxy-3-oxoadipate synthase
Reaction: 2-oxoglutarate + glyoxylate = 2-hydroxy-3-oxoadipate + CO2

Glossary: thiamine diphosphate = 3-[(4-amino-2-methylpyrimidin-5-yl)methyl]-5-(2-diphosphoethyl)-4-methyl-1,3-thiazolium
Other name(s): 2-hydroxy-3-oxoadipate glyoxylate-lyase (carboxylating); α-ketoglutaric-glyoxylic carboligase; oxoglutarate: glyoxylate carboligase
Systematic name: 2-oxoglutarate:glyoxylate succinaldehydetransferase (decarboxylating)
Comments: The bacterial enzyme requires thiamine diphosphate. The product decarboxylates to 5-hydroxy-4-oxopentanoate. The enzyme can decarboxylate 2-oxoglutarate. Acetaldehyde can replace glyoxylate.
