Enzyme Commission Summary:
Contains FAD as prosthetic group. One of several enzymes that catalyse the first step in fatty acids β-oxidation. The enzyme from pig liver can accept substrates with acyl chain lengths of 4 to 16 carbon atoms, but is most active with C8 to C12 compounds [Crane56]. The enzyme from rat does not accept C16 at all and is most active with C6-C8 compounds [Ikeda85]. cf. EC 188.8.131.52, short-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase, EC 184.108.40.206, long-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase, and EC 220.127.116.11, very-long-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase.
