Summary:
The native apparent molecular mass was determined by gel filtration chromatography [Van94].

The native enzyme has been purified from rat liver [Van94].

Three acyl-coenzyme A oxidase isozymes with different substrate specificities have been described in rat liver peroxisomes [Schepers90, Ikegawa98], whereas two isozymes have been described in humans [Baumgart96].

Recombinant rabbit liver enzyme has been expressed and its activity demonstrated [Pedersen97].

Enzymatic reaction of: (25S)-3α,7α,12α-trihydroxy-5β-cholestanoyl-CoA dehydrogenase (peroxisomal acyl-coenzyme A oxidase 2)

Synonyms: THCA-CoA oxidase, 3α,7α,12α-trihydroxy-5-beta-cholestanoyl-CoA oxidase, trihydroxycoprostanoyl-CoA oxidase, trihydroxycholestanoyl-CoA oxidase

EC Number: 1.17.99.-

(25S)-3α,7α,12α-trihydroxy-5β-cholestanoyl-CoA + an oxidized electron acceptor <=> (24E)-3α,7α,12α-trihydroxy-5β-cholest-24-enoyl-CoA + a reduced electron acceptor

The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the direction in which it was curated.

The reaction is favored in the direction shown.

In Pathways: bile acid biosynthesis, neutral pathway

Summary:
This enzyme catalyzes dehydrogenation of (25S)-3α,7α,12α-trihydroxy-5β-cholestanoyl-CoA, which has an asymetric center at C-25, to produce (24E)-3α,7α,12α-trihydroxy-5β-cholest-24-enoyl-CoA [Ikegawa98]. It prefers the S-isomer of this substrate [Ikegawa98, Van96]. It is the first step of peroxisomal β-oxidation of the side chain of (25S)-3α,7α,12α-trihydroxy-5β-cholestanoyl-CoA, an intermediate in bile acid biosynthesis (in [Ikegawa98]).

The mechanism of this reaction and any participating cofactors have not been described.

The enzyme also uses 2-methyl-branched fatty acyl-CoA esters as substrates. The presence of albumin in the assay mixture was required for assay [Van94].

Although this enzyme has been associated with EC 1.17.99.3, the EC comments for EC 1.17.99.3 suggested a mammalian hydroxylase enzyme reaction that involves dehydrogenation followed by hydration. They also described an amphibian enzyme reaction that involves direct hydroxylation. However, in mammalian liver peroxisomes, dehydrogenation of (25S)-3α,7α,12α-trihydroxy-5β-cholestanoyl-CoA to (24E)-3α,7α,12α-trihydroxy-5β-cholest-24-enoyl-CoA is accomplished by the peroxisomal oxidase described here (or its ortholog in other species), whereas hydration of (24E)-3α,7α,12α-trihydroxy-5β-cholest-24-enoyl-CoA to (24R,25R)-3α,7α,12α,24-tetrahydroxy-5β-cholestanoyl CoA and its subsequent dehydrogenation to 3α,7α,12α-trihydroxy-24-oxo-5-β-cholestanoyl CoA are catalyzed by a different peroxisomal gene product, D-bifunctional protein (in [Russell03, Ferdinandusse05, Cuebas02]). Therefore, EC 1.17.99.3 was not used here.

Cofactors or Prosthetic Groups: FAD [Van94]
