Beta-alanyl-CoA ammonia-lyase

Beta-alanyl-CoA ammonia-lyase

In enzymology, a beta-alanyl-CoA ammonia-lyase (EC number| is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

:beta-alanyl-CoA ightleftharpoons acryloyl-CoA + NH3

Hence, this enzyme has one substrate, beta-alanyl-CoA, and two products, acryloyl-CoA and NH3.

This enzyme belongs to the family of lyases, specifically ammonia lyases, which cleave carbon-nitrogen bonds. The systematic name of this enzyme class is beta-alanyl-CoA ammonia-lyase (acryloyl-CoA-forming). This enzyme is also called beta-alanyl coenzyme A ammonia-lyase. This enzyme participates in beta-alanine metabolism and propanoate metabolism.
