Background: Acetyl-CoA Carboxylase alpha/ACACA

Acetyl-CoA carboxylase 1 (ACC1) is a biotin dependent lipogenic enzyme that is highly expressed during adipogenesis. ACC1 catalyzes acetyl-CoA carboxylation, producing malonyl-CoA, a metabolite involved in energy homeostasis regulation. Malonyl-CoA is a two carbon donor in the synthesis of long-chain fatty acids and the elongation of fatty acids found in the cystol (1). ACC1 is regulated short-term by citrate, CoA, and palmitoyl-CoA through allosteric interactions. Nutrients and hormones can be both short-term (inducing reversible phosphorylations by such as AMPK) and long-term (transcription level regulation) regulators of ACC1 (2). Highly expressed in lipogenic tissues, ACC1 is found in liver, adipose, and lactating mammary gland (3). ACC1 has been implicated as a target in the development of anti-obesity drugs (4).
