EC 6.2.1.8 is Orphan !
Common name :Oxalate--CoA ligase

Systematic name :Oxalate:CoA ligase (AMP-forming)

Other names :Oxalyl coenzyme A synthetase
Oxalyl-CoA synthetase
Comments :Requires Mg(2+) for activity. This membrane-bound enzyme catalyzes the first step in the conjugation of bile acids with amino acids, converting bile acids into their acyl-CoA thioesters. The second step involves EC 2.3.1.65, bile acid-CoA:amino acid N-acyltransferase and converts the acyl-CoA thioester into the corresponding N-acyl amidate by conjugation with glycine or taurine (5). Chenodeoxycholate, deoxycholate, lithocholate and trihydroxycoprostanoate can also act as substrates (6).
