Accepted name: (R)-citramalyl-CoA lyase
Reaction: (3R)-citramalyl-CoA = acetyl-CoA + pyruvate
Other name(s): Ccl
Systematic name: (3R)-citramalyl-CoA pyruvate-lyase (acetyl-CoA-forming)
Comments: Requires Mn2+ ions for activity. The enzyme, purified from the bacterium Chloroflexus aurantiacus, has no activity with (3S)-citramalyl-CoA (cf. EC, (S)-citramalyl-CoA lyase).
