Coenzyme A (CoA) is composed of units derived from cysteine, pantothenic acid, and ATP. It
plays important roles in the synthesis and oxidation of fatty acids, pyruvate oxidation in the citric acid cycle and many other biological processes. One of the main functions of CoA is the carrying and transfer of acyl groups. One of the most important acyl groups transferred is the acetate group, in which case the molecule is called acetyl-CoA. The acetyl group eventually finds itself incorporated into a variety of molecules such as cholesterol, acetylcholine, melatonin, heme and the TCA cycle intermediates. In the assay, free CoA is specifically utilized to generate products which react with OxiRed Probe to generate color (lambda = 570nm) and fluorescence (Ex=535/Em=587nm). The assay can detect 0.1 to 10nmol of CoA (2.5-250uM concentration range) in a variety of samples.
