3-methylcrotonyl-CoA carboxylase

Also found in: Acronyms.

3-meth·yl·cro·ton·yl-CoA car·box·yl·ase

a biotin-dependent enzyme in the pathway of l-leucine degradation that catalyzes the reaction of 3-methylcrotonyl-CoA with CO2, ATP, and water to form ADP, orthophosphate, and 3-methylglutaconyl-CoA; a deficiency of this enzyme causes episodes of severe metabolic acidosis.
