The pyruvate generated by cholesterol oxidase activity can also get converted to acetyl CoA and acetyl choline.
Statistically significant differences in acetyl CoA activity in either the mammary gland or the liver were by comparison with rats fed the semisynthetic diet.
These include acetyl CoA carboxylase, the rate limiting enzyme that initiates fatty acid synthesis.
One possible hint is that the statins block an early step in the enzymatic pathway that eventually turns acetyl CoA into cholesterol, while the nitrogen-containing bisphosphonates--alendronate and risedronate--block a step that occurs later in this pathway.
The archaeal pyruvate can get converted to acetyl CoA and acetyl choline.
Regulation of purified rat liver acetyl CoA carboxylase by phosphorylation.
