Palmitoyl coenzyme A lithium salt has been used for microinjecting newt egg, to study the effect of citrate synthase inhibition in egg activation. It has also been used in reaction mix for thioesterase I (tesA) enzymatic activity assay.
Palmitoyl coenzyme A is useful in the biosynthesis of sphingosine, a component of sphingolipids and phospholipids.
Long chain fatty acid (C16) covalently linked to Coenzyme A. Covalent attachment of palmitate is a common occurrence on a wide variety of viral and cellular proteins and plays a role in promoting membrane binding. Palmitoylation may also be a general mechanism for prolonging or potentiating G-protein signaling.
