Active acetate

Active acetate --> acetyl-coa

(Science: enzyme) condensation product of coenzyme a and acetic acid, symbolised as CoAS~COCH3; intermediate in transfer of two-carbon fragment, notably in its entrance into the tricarboxylic acid cycle and in fatty acid synthesis.

this coenzyme plays a huge role in intermediary metabolism, in which cells synthesise, break down or use nutrient molecules for energy production, growth, etc.

Acetyl-coenzyme a synthase is found in bacteria and plants and catalyses the reaction in which acetate enters metabolic pathways and forms acetyl-coenzyme a.

Synonym: acetyl-coenzyme a, active acetate.
