Accepted name: malonate—CoA ligase
Reaction: ATP + malonate + CoA = AMP + diphosphate + malonyl-CoA
Other name(s): ACSF3 (gene name); AAE13 (gene name); malonyl-CoA synthetase
Systematic name: malonate:CoA ligase (AMP-forming)
Comments: The enzyme, found in mitochondria, detoxifies malonate, which is a potent inhibitor of mitochondrial respiration, and provides malonyl-CoA to the mitochondrial fatty acid biosynthesis pathway.
