Reaction: (2S)-methylsuccinyl-CoA + electron-transfer flavoprotein = 2-methylfumaryl-CoA + reduced electron-transfer flavoprotein
Glossary: 2-methylfumaryl-CoA = (E)-3-carboxy-2-methylprop-2-enoyl-CoA
Other name(s): Mcd
Systematic name: (2S)-methylsuccinyl-CoA:electron-transfer flavoprotein oxidoreductase
Comments: The enzyme, characterized from the bacterium Rhodobacter sphaeroides, is involved in the ethylmalonyl-CoA pathway for acetyl-CoA assimilation. The enzyme contains FAD.
