Superclasses: Reactions Classified By Conversion TypeSimple ReactionsChemical Reactions
Reactions Classified By SubstrateSmall-Molecule Reactions

EC Number: 2.1.1.144

Enzymes and Genes:
trans-aconitate 2-methyltransferaseInferred from experiment: tam

The direction shown, i.e. which substrates are on the left and right sides, is in accordance with the direction in which it was curated.

Mass balance status: Balanced.

Enzyme Commission Primary Name: trans-aconitate 2-methyltransferase

Enzyme Commission Summary:
Also catalyzes the formation of the methyl monoester of cis- aconitate, isocitrate and citrate, but more slowly.
While the enzyme from Escherichia coli forms (E)-3- (methoxycarbonyl)-pent-2-enedioate as the product, that from Saccharomyces cerevisiae forms (E)-2-(methoxycarbonylmethyl) butenedioate and is therefore classified as a separate enzyme (cf. EC 2.1.1.145).
