aconitate hydratase activity
name: aconitate hydratase activity
Description: Catalysis of the reactions: citrate = cis-aconitate + H2O, and cis-aconitate + H2O = isocitrate. This reaction is the interconversion of citrate and isocitrate via the labile, enzyme-bound intermediate cis-aconitate. Water is removed from one part of the citrate molecule and added back to a different atom to form isocitrate.
