The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.
Mass balance status: Balanced.
Enzyme Commission Primary Name: dihydrolipoyllysine-residue acetyltransferase
Enzyme Commission Synonyms: acetyl-CoA:dihydrolipoamide S-acetyltransferase, dihydrolipoamide S-acetyltransferase, dihydrolipoate acetyltransferase, dihydrolipoic transacetylase, dihydrolipoyl acetyltransferase, lipoate acetyltransferase, lipoate transacetylase, lipoic acetyltransferase, lipoic acid acetyltransferase, lipoic transacetylase, lipoylacetyltransferase, thioltransacetylase A, transacetylase X, enzyme-dihydrolipoyllysine:acetyl-CoA S-acetyltransferase, acetyl-CoA:enzyme 6-N-(dihydrolipoyl)lysine S-acetyltransferase
Enzyme Commission Summary:
A multimer (24-mer or 60-mer, depending on the source) of this enzyme forms the core of the pyruvate dehydrogenase multienzyme complex, and binds tightly both EC 18.104.22.168, pyruvate dehydrogenase (acetyl-transferring) and EC 22.214.171.124, dihydrolipoyl dehydrogenase. The lipoyl group of this enzyme is reductively acetylated by EC 126.96.36.199, and the only observed direction catalyzed by EC 188.8.131.52 is that where the acetyl group is passed to coenzyme A.
