Accepted name: 3-oxo-5,6-didehydrosuberyl-CoA thiolase
Reaction: 2,3-didehydroadipoyl-CoA + acetyl-CoA = CoA + 3-oxo-5,6-didehydrosuberoyl-CoA
Glossary: 2,3-didehydroadipoyl-CoA = 5-carboxypent-2-enoyl-CoA
3-oxo-5,6-didehydrosuberoyl-CoA = 7-carboxy-3-oxohept-5-enoyl-CoA
Other name(s): paaJ (gene name)
Systematic name: 2,3-didehydroadipoyl-CoA:acetyl-CoA C-didehydroadipoyltransferase (double bond migration)
Comments: The enzyme acts in the opposite direction. The enzymes from the bacteria Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas sp. Y2 also have the activity of EC (3-oxoadipyl-CoA thiolase).
