Acetyl coa carboxylase is involved to conversion of pyruvate to acetyl Coa.

Diana said: (Jan 15, 2014)  
I want more explanation on how this Acetyl CoA convert pyruvate to acetyl coA.

Daniel said: (Aug 7, 2014)  
By removing one carbon from pyruvate at the some time relating the remaining two carbon with coA.

Dr.P said: (Sep 18, 2014)  
Acytyl coA carboxylase use for acetyl coA convert to malonyl coA to fatty acid synthase.

Genesta said: (Dec 21, 2014)  
It is formed when Pyruvic acid under go Decarboxylation reaction.

More explanation on how acetyl CoA carboxylase can synthesis fatty acids?

Drjoseph Brainy said: (Nov 27, 2015)  
Acetyl-CoA carboxylase catalyzes the synthesis of malonyl-CoA, the first committed reaction of fatty acid biosynthesis.

Ayman said: (Feb 26, 2016)  
I need more explanation on acetyl-carboxylase.

Fuseini M. Nuru-Deen said: (Mar 8, 2016)  
How is acetyl coA formed?

Skrypture said: (Jul 19, 2016)  
The key enzyme is acetyl-CoA carboxylase, because the conversion of acetyl-CoA to malonyl CoA is the committed step.

Wanene said: (Dec 18, 2016)  
What is CoA?

Renuka said: (Mar 25, 2017)  
Acetyl CoA on carboxylation gives malonyl co a with acetyl CoA carboxylase.

Bilya Ibrahim Nadaba said: (Apr 2, 2017)  
The carboxylase is controlled by which homones?

Ketha Praveena said: (May 29, 2020)  
Acetyl-CoA carboxylase, which catalyzes synthesis of malonyl-CoA, is only regulated by enzyme in fatty acid synthesis. Its regulation involves both allosteric control and covalent modification. The enzyme is known to be phosphorylated by both AMP Kinase and Protein Kinase A.
