Functioni

Involved in the catabolism of short chain fatty acids (SCFA) via the tricarboxylic acid (TCA)(acetyl degradation route) and via the 2-methylcitrate cycle I (propionate degradation route). Catalyzes the Claisen condensation of propionyl-CoA and oxaloacetate (OAA) to yield (2S,3S)-2-methylcitrate (2-MC) and CoA. Also catalyzes the condensation of oxaloacetate with acetyl-CoA but with a lower specificity.2 Publications

Catalytic activityi

Propanoyl-CoA + H2O + oxaloacetate = (2S,3S)-2-hydroxybutane-1,2,3-tricarboxylate + CoA.1 Publication
Acetyl-CoA + H2O + oxaloacetate = citrate + CoA.2 Publications

Kineticsi

Kcat is 8 sec(-1) for 2-methylcitrate synthase activity with propionyl-CoA as substrate (at pH 8 and 23 degrees Celsius). Kcat is 21 sec(-1) for citrate synthase activity with acetyl-CoA as substrate (at pH 8 and 23 degrees Celsius).2 Publications

Temperature dependencei

Optimum temperature is 31 degrees Celsius. Cold-active. Is rapidly inactivated at 45 degrees Celsius, and shows significant activity at 10 degrees Celsius and below.1 Publication
