Accepted name: long-chain-enoyl-CoA hydratase
Reaction: a long-chain (3S)-3-hydroxyacyl-CoA = a long-chain trans-2-enoyl-CoA + H2O
Glossary: a long-chain acyl-CoA = an acyl-CoA thioester where the acyl chain contains 13 to 22 carbon atoms.
Other name(s): long-chain enoyl coenzyme A hydratase
Systematic name: long-chain-(3S)-3-hydroxyacyl-CoA hydro-lyase
Comments: Acts in the reverse direction. The best substrate is oct-3-enoyl-CoA. Unlike EC enoyl-CoA hydratase, it does not act on crotonoyl-CoA.
