Acetyl-CoA is an essential cofactor and carrier of acyl groups in enzymatic reactions. It is formed either by the oxidative decarboxylation of pyruvate, β-oxidation of fatty acids or oxidative degradation of certain amino acids. It is an intermediate in fatty acid and amino acid metabolism. It is the starting compound for the citric acid cycle. It is a precursor for the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. It is required for acetyltransferases and acyltransferases in the post-translational modification of proteins.
