|Hydroxyacyl-Coenzyme A dehydrogenase|
|Locus||Chr. 4 q22-q26|
This enzyme belongs to the family of oxidoreductases, to be specific those acting on the CH-OH group of donor with NAD+ or NADP+ as acceptor.
In humans, the following genes encode proteins with 3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase activity:
3-Hydroxyacyl CoA dehydrogenase is classified as an oxidoreductase. It is involved in fatty acid metabolic processes. Specifically it catalyzes the third step of beta oxidation; the oxidation of L-3-hydroxyacyl CoA by NAD+. The reaction converts the hydroxyl group into a keto group.
The end product is 3-ketoacyl CoA.
This enzyme participates in 8 metabolic pathways:
The systematic name of this enzyme class is (S)-3-hydroxyacyl-CoA:NAD+ oxidoreductase. Other names in common use include:
