Propionyl-CoA carboxylase catalyses the carboxylation reaction of propionyl CoA. The product of the reaction is D-methylmalonyl CoA.

 ATP + propanoyl-CoA + HCO3- <=> ADP + phosphate + (S)-methylmalonyl-CoA

It has been classified both as a ligase[1] and a lyase.[2]


A deficiency is associated with propionic acidemia.
