Accepted name: 3-(aryl)acrylate reductase
Reaction: (1) phloretate + electron-transfer flavoprotein = 4-coumarate + reduced electron-transfer flavoprotein
(2) 3-phenylpropanoate + electron-transfer flavoprotein = trans-cinnamate + reduced electron-transfer flavoprotein
(3) 3-(1H-indol-3-yl)propanoate + electron-transfer flavoprotein = 3-(indol-3-yl)acrylate + reduced electron-transfer flavoprotein
Glossary: phloretate = 3-(4-hydroxyphenyl)propanoate
crotonate = (2E)-but-2-enoate
Other name(s): acdA (gene name)
Systematic name: 3-(phenyl)propanoate:electron-transfer flavoprotein 2,3-oxidoreductase
Comments: The enzyme, found in some amino acid-fermenting anaerobic bacteria, participates in the fermentation pathways of L-phenylalanine, L-tyrosine, and L-tryptophan. Unlike EC, 2-enoate reductase, this enzyme has minimal activity with crotonate.
