Regulation summary diagram for yfdE

Subunit composition of acetyl-CoA:oxalate CoA-transferase = [YfdE]2
         acetyl-CoA:oxalate CoA-transferase = YfdE

YfdE is a class III CoA-transferase with acetyl-CoA:oxalate CoA-transferase activity. The enzyme may be involved in priming the oxalate-induced acid tolerance response with substrates for oxalyl-CoA decarboxylase and formyl-CoA transferase [Mullins13].

A crystal structure of the enzyme has been solved [Mullins13].
