Accepted name: crotonobetainyl-CoA reductase
Reaction: γ-butyrobetainyl-CoA + electron-transfer flavoprotein = crotonobetainyl-CoA + reduced electron-transfer flavoprotein
Glossary: γ-butyrobetainyl-CoA = 4-(trimethylammonio)butanoyl-CoA
crotonobetainyl-CoA = (E)-4-(trimethylammonio)but-2-enoyl-CoA
Other name(s): caiA (gene name)
Systematic name: γ-butyrobetainyl-CoA:electron-transfer flavoprotein 2,3-oxidoreductase
Comments: The enzyme has been purified from the bacterium Escherichia coli O44 K74, in which it forms a complex with EC, L-carnitine CoA-transferase. The electron donor is believed to be an electron-transfer flavoprotein (ETF) encoded by the fixA and fixB genes.
