Biochem/physiol Actions

Coenzyme A functions as an acyl group carrier, acetyl-CoA. Malonyl Coenzyme A is a coenzyme A derivative that is utilized in fatty acid and polyketide synthesis and in the transport of α-ketoglutarate across the mitochondrial membrane. Malonyl CoA is formed by the Acetyl CoA Carboxylase-mediated carboxylation of acetyl CoA. Malonyl-CoA is exclusively used as the extender unit in the synthesis of bacterial aromatic polyketides.
