Description:
In enzymology, an alpha-methylacyl-CoA racemase () is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

(2S)-2-methylacyl-CoA <math>rightleftharpoons</math> (2R)-2-methylacyl-CoA


Hence, this enzyme has one substrate, -2-methylacyl-CoA, and one product, -2-methylacyl-CoA.

This enzyme belongs to the family of isomerases, specifically those racemases and epimerases acting on other compounds. The systematic name of this enzyme class is 2-methylacyl-CoA 2-epimerase.

Structural studies

As of late 2007, 7 structures have been solved for this class of enzymes, with PDB accession codes , , , , , , and .
