Accepted name: acetyl-CoA C-myristoyltransferase
Reaction: myristoyl-CoA + acetyl-CoA = CoA + 3-oxopalmitoyl-CoA
Systematic name: myristoyl-CoA:acetyl-CoA C-myristoyltransferase
Comments: A peroxisomal enzyme involved in branched chain fatty acid β-oxidation in peroxisomes. It differs from EC (propionyl-CoA C2-trimethyldecanoyltransferase) in not being active towards 3-oxopristanoyl-CoA.
