Accepted name: 3-methyl-2-oxobutanoate dehydrogenase (ferredoxin)
Reaction: 3-methyl-2-oxobutanoate + CoA + 2 oxidized ferredoxin = S-(2-methylpropanoyl)-CoA + CO2 + 2 reduced ferredoxin + H+
Other name(s): 2-ketoisovalerate ferredoxin reductase; 3-methyl-2-oxobutanoate synthase (ferredoxin); VOR; branched-chain ketoacid ferredoxin reductase; branched-chain oxo acid ferredoxin reductase; keto-valine-ferredoxin oxidoreductase; ketoisovalerate ferredoxin reductase; 2-oxoisovalerate ferredoxin reductase
Systematic name: 3-methyl-2-oxobutanoate:ferredoxin oxidoreductase (decarboxylating; CoA-2-methylpropanoylating)
Comments: The enzyme is CoA-dependent and contains thiamine diphosphate and iron-sulfur clusters. Preferentially utilizes 2-oxo-acid derivatives of branched chain amino acids, e.g. 3-methyl-2-oxopentanoate, 4-methyl-2-oxo-pentanoate, and 2-oxobutanoate. This enzyme is a member of the 2-oxoacid oxidoreductases, a family of enzymes that reversibly catalyse the oxidative decarboxylation of different 2-oxoacids to form their CoA derivatives, and are differentiated based on their substrate specificity. For examples of other members of this family, see EC, pyruvate synthase, and EC, 2-oxoglutarate synthase.
