MetaCyc Enzyme: butyryl-CoA dehydrogenase

Gene: bcd Accession Numbers: G-93 (MetaCyc), CA_C2711

Species: Clostridium acetobutylicum ATCC 824

Summary:
Butyryl-CoA dehydrogenase, BCD, is an enzyme in the central fermentation pathway of Clostridium acetobutylicum. It plays a central role in the production of both acids and solvents. BCD has not been thoroughly characterized.

The bcd gene, which encodes the enzyme, has been cloned and sequenced [Boynton96a]. There is evidence that BCD interacts with the electron transfer flavoprotein in its redox function [Boynton96a, Woods93].

Molecular Weight of Polypeptide: 41.387 kD (from nucleotide sequence)

Gene-Reaction Schematic: ?


Enzymatic reaction of: butyryl-CoA dehydrogenase

Synonyms: BCD, butyryl dehydrogenase, acyl-CoA dehydrogenase, short-chain specific, SCAD, unsaturated acyl-CoA reductase, butanoyl-CoA:(acceptor) 2,3-oxidoreductase

butanoyl-CoA + an oxidized electron-transfer flavoprotein + H+ <=> crotonyl-CoA + a reduced electron-transfer flavoprotein

The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the direction of enzyme catalysis.

This reaction is reversible.
