It also increases conversion of piruvate by piruvate decarboxilase to acetyl CoA by increasing the use of free coenzyme A (Co A).
Here, an acetyl-CoA molecule combines with two carbon dioxide units and gets reductively converted, first to 3-hydroxypropianate and then to 4-hydroxy butyrate, eventually yielding two acetyl CoA molecules in a reaction catalyzed by 4-hydroxybutyryl-CoA dehydratase.
Statistically significant differences in acetyl CoA activity in either the mammary gland or the liver were by comparison with rats fed the semisynthetic diet.
Phosphorylation of both acetyl CoA carboxylase and AMP-activated protein kinase was increased, thus explaining the increase in fatty acid oxidation.
HMG CoA reductase regulates the synthesis of steroids from acetyl CoA and is a rate limiting step in the synthesis of cholesterol (15) when substrate is available there should be an increase in the activity of enzyme.
The recent observation showing acetylation of proteins by calreticulin (an endoplasmic reticulum resident protein) with a high efficiency when polyphenolic acetates are the acetyl group donating molecules and acetyl CoA as weak substrate extends the realm of protein acetylation beyond HAT/HDAC combination.
