GO term:acetyl-CoA metabolic process
Synonym: acetyl-CoA metabolism
Synonym: acetyl coenzyme A metabolic process
Synonym: acetyl coenzyme A metabolism
GO id:GO:0006084
Definition:The chemical reactions and pathways involving acetyl-CoA, a derivative of coenzyme A in which the sulfhydryl group is acetylated; it is a metabolite derived from several pathways (e.g. glycolysis, fatty acid oxidation, amino-acid catabolism) and is further metabolized by the tricarboxylic acid cycle. It is a key intermediate in lipid and terpenoid biosynthesis.
Number of paths to term: 9
