Coenzyme A sodium salt hydrate

cofactor for acyl transfer

Synonym: CoA Na2




1 g in poly bottle

25, 100, 500 mg in poly bottle

10 mg in glass bottle


Coenzyme A is suitable for use in:
• gylcerolipid biosynthesis in porcine adipose tissue
• an assay to measure the level of Alpha-methylacyl-CoA racemase (AMACR) in human blood samples using a nanoparticle electrochemical biosensor
• chloramphenicol acetyltransferase (CAT) assay
• the synthesis of palmitoyl-CoA, which is required for palmitoylation and activation of proteins for regulated membrane fusion

Biochem/physiol Actions

Coenzyme A (CoA, CoASH, HSCoA) is a coenzyme that facilitates enzymatic acyl-group transfer reactions and supports the synthesis and oxidation of fatty acids. CoA is involved in the mechanisms of a wide variety of enzymes. In the presence of CoASH, organic carboxylic acids form acyl-CoA thioesters, which facilitates enzyme recognition. The acyl-CoA formed from xenobiotic carboxylic acids can add to the compound′s toxicity, which can lead to cellular metabolic dysfunction. It is involved in the oxidation of pyruvate in the Kreb′s cycle.
