  • A novel D-(-)-3-hydroxyacyl-CoA hydro-lyase, forming 2-trans-enoyl-CoA and formerly designated as epimerase (EC 5.1.2.3), was extracted from fat-degrading cotyledons of cucumber seedlings. The enzyme, called D-3-hydroxyacyl-CoA hydro-lyase or D-specific 2-trans-enoyl-CoA hydratase, is shown to be required for the degradation of unsaturated fatty acids that contain double bonds extending from even-numbered C atoms. The D-3-hydroxyacyl-CoA hydro-lyase was exclusively localized within peroxisomes… CONTINUE READING
