Re:

... all you need is to look for regulation of acetyl-coa carboxylase. Ok. I found that AMP regulates synthesis of fatty acids by regulating how much malonyl is available to be used, but could that be considered a "trigger" for whether acetyl coa becomes malonyl coa? I am also confused about ...

... been assigned to catalytic domains within six large multienzyme synthases/synthetases (McyA-E, G), which incorporate the precursors phenylacetate, malonyl-CoA, S-adenosyl-L-methionine, glutamate, serine, alanine, leucine, D-methyl-isoaspartate, and arginine. The additional four monofunctional proteins ...
