Isomerization of (2R)-pristanoyl-CoA to (2S)-pristanoyl-CoA (R-HSA-389897) [Homo sapiens]


Peroxisomal 2-methylacyl-CoA racemase (AMACR) catalyzes the isomerization of (2R)-pristanoyl-CoA to form (2S)-pristanoyl-CoA. The active form of the enzyme is a monomer (Schmitz et al. 1995; Amery et al. 2000; Ferdinandusse et al. 2000).
