glutaryl-CoAmedical dictionary

The mono thiol ester of coenzyme A and glutaric acid; an intermediate in l-lysine and l-tryptophan catabolism.

Glutaryl-CoA dehydrogenase, an enzyme that catalyses the reaction of glutaryl-CoA with an acceptor to form crotonoyl-CoA, CO2, and the reduced acceptor; a deficiency of this enzyme will lead to either glutaric acidemia type I or hyperoxaluria type II.

Glutaryl-CoA synthetase, an enzyme similar to acyl-CoA synthetase, but which splits ATP, GTP, or ITP to the nucleoside diphosphate and orthophosphate in acting on glutarate, thus forming glutaryl-Coa.
