  • plays
  • It is a coenzyme that plays a role in the release of energy from food. (nutritionexpress.com)
  • Its bioactive form, coenzyme A, plays many roles in the body, including the metabolism of proteins, fats and carbohydrates, the production of energy, as well as the synthesis of red blood cells and the key neurotransmitter, acetylcholine. (vitaoto.com)
  • enzymology
  • In enzymology, coenzyme-B sulfoethylthiotransferase, also known as methyl-coenzyme M reductase (MCR) or most systematically as 2-(methylthio)ethanesulfonate:N-(7-thioheptanoyl)-3-O-phosphothreonine S-(2-sulfoethyl)thiotransferase is an enzyme that catalyzes the final step in the formation of methane.

  • oxidoreductase
  • The coenzyme Q : cytochrome c - oxidoreductase, sometimes called the cytochrome bc1 complex, and at other times complex III, is the third complex in the electron transport chain (EC 1.10.2.2), playing a critical role in biochemical generation of ATP (oxidative phosphorylation). (wikipedia.org)
  • binds
  • Crystal structures for the E. coli SCS provide evidence that the coenzyme A binds within each α-subunit (within a Rossman fold) in close proximity to a histidine residue (His246α). (wikipedia.org)
  • flavin
  • Vitamin B-2, or riboflavin, is the precursor for the flavin coenzymes flavin mononucleotide, or FMN, and flavin adenine dinucleotide, or FAD. (livestrong.com)
  • oxidation
  • Coenzyme A (CoA, CoASH, or HSCoA) is a coenzyme, notable for its role in the synthesis and oxidation of fatty acids, and the oxidation of pyruvate in the citric acid cycle. (wikipedia.org)
  • Its acetyl-coenzyme A form is the primary input in the citric acid cycle and is obtained from glycolysis, amino acid metabolism, and fatty acid beta oxidation. (wikipedia.org)
  • electrons
  • Some coenzymes function by ferrying electrons or negative charges to enhance a reaction. (livestrong.com)
  • Vitamin B-3, on the other hand, is the precursor for the nicotinamide coenzymes, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, or NAD, and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide 2'-phosphate, or NADP, which carry electrons between different proteins. (livestrong.com)
  • Catalyzes
  • Succinyl coenzyme A synthetase (SCS, also known as succinyl-CoA synthetase or succinate thiokinase or succinate-CoA ligase) is an enzyme that catalyzes the reversible reaction of succinyl-CoA to succinate. (wikipedia.org)
  • immune system
  • Studies have shown that Coenzyme Q10 helps the immune system work better and makes the body better able to resist certain infections and types of cancer, as well as helps protect heart. (viovet.co.uk)
  • function
  • He was able to isolate and purify the factor from pig liver and discovered that its function was related to a coenzyme that was active in choline acetylation. (wikipedia.org)
  • Structure
  • The structure of coenzyme A was identified in the early 1950s at the Lister Institute, London, together by Fritz Lipmann and other workers at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital. (wikipedia.org)
