Accepted name: acyl-CoA hydrolase
Reaction: acyl-CoA + H2O = CoA + a carboxylate
Other name(s): acyl coenzyme A thioesterase; acyl-CoA thioesterase; acyl coenzyme A hydrolase; thioesterase B; thioesterase II; acyl-CoA thioesterase
Systematic name: acyl-CoA hydrolase
Comments: Broad specificity for medium- to long-chain acyl-CoA. Insensitive to NAD+ (cf. EC ADP-dependent medium-chain-acyl-CoA hydrolase)
