a·ce·tyl-CoA

(a-sĕ'til),
Condensation product of coenzyme A and acetic acid, symbolized as CoAS~COCH3 or as AcCoa; an intermediate in the transfer of two-carbon fragments, notably in the tricarboxylic acid cycle and in fatty acid synthesis.

acetyl-CoA

(ə-sēt′l-kō′ā′, ăs′ĭ-tl-)

Acetyl-CoA

A coenzyme derivative in the metabolism of glucose and fatty acids that contributes substrates to the Krebs cycle. Acetyl CoA provides the acetyl for multiple biochemical reactions and plays a key role in intermediary metabolism—synthesis, catabolism, or use of nutrients for energy production and growth.

acetyl-CoA

Acetylcoenzyme A Metabolism A coenzyme derivative in the metabolism of glucose and fatty acids that contributes substrates to the Krebs cycle; acetyl CoA provides the acetyl unit for multiple biochemical reactions and plays a central role in intermediary metabolism–synthesis, catabolism, or use of nutrients for energy production and growth. See Citric acid cycle.

a·ce·tyl-CoA

(as'ĕ-til)
Condensation product of coenzyme A and acetic acid, symbolized as CoAS∼COCH3; intermediate in transfer of two-carbon fragment, notably in its entrance into the tricarboxylic acid cycle and in fatty acid synthesis.
