Transferred entry: (R)-citramalate synthase. Now classified as EC, (R)-citramalate synthase.
[EC created 2007, deleted 2021]
Accepted name: (R)-citramalate synthase
Reaction: acetyl-CoA + pyruvate + H2O = CoA + (2R)-2-hydroxy-2-methylbutanedioate
Glossary: (2R)-2-hydroxy-2-methylbutanedioate = (2R)-2-methylmalate = (–)-citramalate
3-methyl-2-oxobutanoate = α-ketoisovalerate
2-oxobutanoate = α-ketobutyrate
4-methyl-2-oxopentanoate = α-ketoisocaproate
2-oxohexanoate = α-ketopimelate
2-oxoglutarate = α-ketoglutarate
Other name(s): CimA
Comments: One of the enzymes involved in a pyruvate-derived pathway for isoleucine biosynthesis that is found in some bacterial and archaeal species [1,2]. The enzyme can be inhibited by isoleucine, the end-product of the pathway, but not by leucine [2]. The enzyme is highly specific for pyruvate as substrate, as the 2-oxo acids 3-methyl-2-oxobutanoate, 2-oxobutanoate, 4-methyl-2-oxopentanoate, 2-oxohexanoate and 2-oxoglutarate cannot act as substrate [1,2].

[EC created 2007 as EC, transferred 2021 to EC]
Accepted name: succinyl-CoA—D-citramalate CoA-transferase
Reaction: (1) succinyl-CoA + (R)-citramalate = succinate + (R)-citramalyl-CoA
(2) succinyl-CoA + (R)-malate = succinate + (R)-malyl-CoA
Glossary: (R)-citramalate = (2R)-2-hydroxy-2-methylbutanedioate
(R)-malate = (2R)-2-hydroxybutanedioate
(R)-malyl-CoA = (3R)-3-carboxy-3-hydroxypropanoyl-CoA
Other name(s): Sct
Systematic name: succinyl-CoA:(R)-citramalate CoA-transferase
Comments: The enzyme, purified from the bacterium Clostridium tetanomorphum, can also accept itaconate as acceptor, with lower efficiency.
