Comments [?]

Function Catalyzes the condensation of the acetyl group of acetyl-CoA with 3-methyl-2-oxobutanoate (2-oxoisovalerate) to form 3-carboxy-3-hydroxy-4-methylpentanoate (2-isopropylmalate).
Catalytic activity Acetyl-CoA + 3-methyl-2-oxobutanoate + H(2)O = (2S)-2-isopropylmalate + CoA.
Pathway Amino-acid biosynthesis; L-leucine biosynthesis; L-leucine from 3-methyl-2-oxobutanoate: step 1/4.
Subunit Homotetramer.
Similarity Belongs to the alpha-IPM synthase/homocitrate synthase family. LeuA type 2 subfamily.
