Succinyl coenzyme A sodium salt has been used:
  • for the nonenzymatic succinylation of lysine in vitro,
  • as a substrate for adipic acid biosynthesis in recombinant E. coli
  • in isocitrate dehydrogenase (ICDH) treatment for the succinylation of proteins
  • as a substrate to study the specificity and kinetics of enzymes such as acetate:succinate CoA-transferase and 5-aminolevulinate synthase (ALA synthase)

Biochem/physiol Actions

Succinyl CoA is an intermediate in the citric acid cycle. It is formed by α-ketoglutarate dehydrogenase by the decarboxylation of α-ketoglutarate. Succinyl CoA is also formed from propionyl CoA during the β-oxidation of odd-chain fatty acids. Succinyl CoA serves as a precursor in heme synthesis. It is also required for the oxidation of ketone bodies.

Mycobacterium tuberculosis is predicted to subsist on alternative carbon sources during persistence within the human host. Catabolism of odd- and branched-chain fatty acids, branched-chain amino acids, and cholesterol generates propionyl-coenzyme A (CoA) as a terminal, three-carbon (C(3)) product. Propionate constitutes

Pyridoxal-5'-phosphate (PLP) is an obligatory cofactor for the homodimeric mitochondrial enzyme 5-aminolevulinate synthase (ALAS), which controls metabolic flux into the porphyrin biosynthetic pathway in animals, fungi, and the α-subclass of proteobacteria. Recent work has provided an explanation for how this

Acetate:succinate CoA-transferases (ASCT) are acetate-producing enzymes in hydrogenosomes, anaerobically functioning mitochondria and in the aerobically functioning mitochondria of trypanosomatids. Although acetate is produced in the hydrogenosomes of a number of anaerobic microbial eukaryotes such as Trichomonas vaginalis, no acetate producing
