S-Acetyl-coenzyme A synthetase may be used to study various metabolic pathways, such as glycolysis, gluconeogenesis, pyruvate metabolism and CO2 fixation. It may also be used in gene expression studies.
S-Acetyl-coenzyme A synthetase from baker′s yeast (S. cerevisiae) has been used in the synthesis of adenosine 5′-tetraphosphate and adenosine 5′-pentaphosphate.
5 mg in poly bottle
Package size based on protein content.
Acetyl-coenzyme A synthetase catalyzes the production of acetyl-CoA. It is involved in histone acetylation in the nucleus. It may be involved in the growth of nonfermentable carbon sources such as glycerol. Acetyl-coenzyme A synthetase is induced by acetate, acetaldehyde and ethanol .
One unit will form 1.0 μmole of S-acetyl coenzyme A from acetate, ATP, and coenzyme A per min at pH 7.5 at 37 °C.
Lyophilized powder containing stabilizers as potassium phosphate, sucrose, and reduced glutathione
