citrate (si)-synthase

citrate (si)-synthase
cit·rate (si)-syn·thase (sitґrāt sinґthās) [EC 2.3.3.1] an enzyme of the transferase class that catalyzes the condensation of oxaloacetate and the acetyl group of acetyl coenzyme A to form citrate and coenzyme A. This is the initial reaction in the tricarboxylic acid cycle (see illustration under cycle).
