dihydrolipoyllysine-residue acetyltransferase

dihydrolipoyllysine-residue acetyltransferase
di·hy·dro·lip·o·yl·lys·ine-res·i·due ac·e·tyl·trans·fer·ase (di-hi″dro-lip″o-əl-liґsēn rezґĭ-doo as″ə-tēl-transґfər-ās) [EC] an enzyme of the transferase class that is a component of the multienzyme pyruvate dehydrogenase complex (q.v.). The lipoyl group of this enzyme is reductively acetylated by pyruvate dehydrogenase (acetyl-transferring); the enzyme then catalyzes the transfer of acetyl from its lipoamide chain to coenzyme A to form acetyl CoA. Called also dihydrolipoyl transacetylase.
