Accepted name: bile-acid-CoA hydrolase

Reaction: deoxycholoyl-CoA + H2O = CoA + deoxycholate

Glossary: deoxycholate = 3α,12α-dihydroxy-5β-cholan-24-oate

Systematic name: deoxycholoyl-CoA hydrolase

Comments: Choloyl-CoA, 3-dehydrocholoyl-CoA and chenodeoxycholoyl-CoA can also act as substrates, but acetyl-CoA, isovaleryl-CoA, palmitoyl-CoA and phenylacetyl-CoA cannot.
