Acsm3 ligates CoA to BUT

Mitochondrial acyl-coenzyme A synthetase Acsm3 (aka protein Sa) is expressed in the mitochondrial matrix and possesses medium-chain fatty acid:CoA ligase activity. Acsm3 preferentially ligates C2-C6 fatty acids, especially butyrate (BUT, a C4 fatty acid) (Fujino et al. 2001). The product, butyryl-CoA (BT-CoA) is used in beta oxidation.
