Most BioCyc compounds have been protonated to a reference pH value of 7.3, and some reactions have been computationally balanced for hydrogen by adding free protons. Please see the PGDB Concepts Guide for more information.
Mass balance status: Balanced.
Enzyme Commission Primary Name: 2-oxoglutarate carboxylase
Enzyme Commission Synonyms: oxalosuccinate synθse, carboxylating factor for ICDH (incorrect), CFI, OGC
Standard Gibbs Free Energy (ΔrG'° in kcal/mol): -9.341309 [Latendresse13]
Enzyme Commission Summary:
A biotin-containing enzyme that requires Mg2+ for activity. It was originally thought [Aoshima04] that this enzyme was a promoting factor for the carboxylation of 2-oxoglutarate by EC 184.108.40.206, isocitrate dehydrogenase (NAD+), but this has since been disproved [Aoshima06]. The product of the reaction is unstable and is quickly converted into isocitrate by the action of EC 220.127.116.11 [Aoshima06].
