Accepted name: citrate CoA-transferase
Reaction: acetyl-CoA + citrate = acetate + (3S)-citryl-CoA
Systematic name: acetyl-CoA:citrate CoA-transferase
Comments: The enzyme is a component of EC [citrate (pro-3S)-lyase]. Also catalyses the transfer of thioacyl carrier protein from its acetyl thioester to citrate.
