  • Function

    Catalyzes the conversion of malonyl-CoA to acetyl-CoA. In the fatty acid biosynthesis MCD selectively removes malonyl-CoA and thus assures that methyl-malonyl-CoA is the only chain elongating substrate for fatty acid synthase and that fatty acids with multiple methyl side chains are produced. In peroxisomes it may be involved in degrading intraperoxisomal malonyl-CoA, which is generated by the peroxisomal beta-oxidation of odd chain-length dicarboxylic fatty acids.
  • Pathway

    Metabolic intermediate biosynthesis; acetyl-CoA biosynthesis; acetyl-CoA from malonyl-CoA: step 1/1.
  • Involvement in disease

    Malonyl-CoA decarboxylase deficiency (MLYCD deficiency) [MIM:248360]: Autosomal recessive disease characterized by abdominal pain, chronic constipation, episodic vomiting, metabolic acidosis and malonic aciduria. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
