MetaCyc Compound Class: a long-chain acyl-CoA

Synonyms: a fatty acyl-CoA, fatty acyl CoA-, acyl-CoA, a fatty acyl CoA, long-chain acyl-CoA

Superclasses: an ester a thioester a coenzyme A-activated compound an acyl-CoA

Summary:
Acyl-CoAs are oxoacids that have been activated by coenzyme A. They are often classified by the length of their acyl moiety.

Medium-chain acyl-CoAs are derived from fatty acids with aliphatic chains of 6-12 carbons.

Long-chain acyl-CoAs are derived from fatty acids with aliphatic chains of 13-22 carbons.

Very-long-chain fatty acyl-CoAs are derived from fatty acids with aliphatic chains of 23 carbons or longer.
