The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.
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: branched-chain-2-oxoacid decarboxylase
Enzyme Commission Synonyms: branched-chain oxo acid decarboxylase, branched-chain α-keto acid decarboxylase, branched-chain keto acid decarboxylase, BCKA, (3S)-3-methyl-2-oxopentanoate carboxy-lyase
Standard Gibbs Free Energy (ΔrG'° in kcal/mol): -3.465889 [Latendresse13]
Enzyme Commission Summary:
Acts on a number of 2-oxo acids, with a high affinity towards branched-chain substrates. The aldehyde formed may be enzyme-bound, and may be an intermediate in the bacterial system for the biosynthesis of branched-chain fatty acids.
Instance reaction of [a 2-oxo carboxylate + H+ = an aldehyde + CO2] (126.96.36.199):
i1: pyruvate + H+ → acetaldehyde + CO2 (188.8.131.52)
