acetyl-CoA C-acyltransferase

ac·e·tyl-CoA C-acyl·trans·fer·ase (asґə-təl-ko-aґ a″səl-transґfər-ās) (as″ə-tēlґko-aґ a″səl-transґfər-ās) [EC 2.3.1.16] any of several enzymes of the transferase class that catalyze the conversion of a 3-ketoacyl CoA to acetyl coenzyme A and an acyl coenzyme A with its chain length shortened by two carbons; the reaction converts fatty acid chains to two-carbon units via beta oxidation. See also individual enzymes, e.g., α-methylacetoacetyl CoA thiolase. Called also β-ketothiolase.
