1. Acetyl coA synthase
This enzyme is found in bacteria and plants; it catalyzes the reaction in which acetate enters metabolic pathways and forms acetyl coenzyme A .

2. Acetyl CoA
An intermediate compound formed during the breakdown of glucose by adding a two-carbon fragment to a carrier molecule (coenzyme A or CoA).

3. Acetyl coenzyme A (acetyl CoA)
This coenzyme plays a huge role in intermediary metabolism, in which cells synthesize, break down or use nutrient molecules for energy production, growth, etc.

4. Beta oxidation
The oxidative breakdown of fatty acid s into acetyl-coenzyme A by repeated oxidation at the szlig-carbon atom.

5. Biotin (vitamin H, coenzyme R, bioepiderm)
A water-soluble vitamin (a member of the B complex vitamin s) that is important because it replenishes an intermediate in the Krebs cycle . It is also used in biochemistry to detect certain protein and DNA interaction.

6. Coenzyme
An organic, nonprotein molecule that binds with an apoenzyme (a protein molecule) to form an active enzyme . coenzymes are often derived from vitamin s.

7. Coenzyme A
A coenzyme that takes part in fatty acid metabolism . It contains pantothenic acid and serves as an acyl group carrier.

8. Coenzyme B12 (cobalamin)
A coenzyme derived from cobalamine which is involved in carbon skeletal rearrangements. It is the only biomolecule known that has a carbon-metal bond.

9. Coenzymes
Chemicals required by a number of enzymes for proper functioning; also known as enzyme cofactors.

10. Cofactor
A coenzyme or inorganic ion that is needed for catalytic activity by enzyme s.
