EC Tree
IUBMB Comments
The enzyme contains thiamine diphosphate and two [4Fe-4S] clusters. Highly specific for 2-oxoglutarate. This enzyme is a member of the 2-oxoacid oxidoreductases, a family of enzymes that oxidatively decarboxylate different 2-oxoacids to form their CoA derivatives, and are differentiated based on their substrate specificity. For examples of other members of this family, see EC, pyruvate synthase and EC, 3-methyl-2-oxobutanoate dehydrogenase (ferredoxin).
