Accepted name: succinyl-CoA:mesaconate CoA transferase
Reaction: succinyl-CoA + mesaconate = 2-methylfumaryl-CoA + succinate
Glossary: 2-methylfumaryl-CoA = (E)-3-carboxy-2-methylprop-2-enoyl-CoA
mesaconate = 2-methylbut-2-enedioic acid
Other name(s): mct (gene name)
Systematic name: succinyl-CoA:mesaconate CoA transferase
Comments: The enzyme participates in the methylaspartate cycle, an anaplerotic pathway that operates in some members of the haloarchaea and forms malate from acetyl-CoA.
