Accepted name: formyl-CoA transferase
Reaction: formyl-CoA + oxalate = formate + oxalyl-CoA
Other name(s): formyl-coenzyme A transferase; formyl-CoA oxalate CoA-transferase
Systematic name: formyl-CoA:oxalate CoA-transferase
Comments: The enzyme from Oxalobacter formigenes can also catalyse the transfer of CoA from formyl-CoA to succinate.
