IUBMB Comments
Contains FAD as prosthetic group. One of several enzymes that catalyse the first step in fatty acids beta-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 . The enzyme from rat does not accept C16 at all and is most active with C6-C8 compounds . cf. EC 1.3.8.1, short-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase, EC 1.3.8.8, long-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase, and EC 1.3.8.9, very-long-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase.
