MetaCyc Gene-Ontology-Terms Class: GO:0006084 - acetyl-CoA metabolic process

Synonyms: acetyl coenzyme A metabolic process, acetyl coenzyme A metabolism, acetyl-CoA metabolism

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.
