As a constituent of coenzyme A, pantothenic acid is involved in many reactions of protein, carbohydrate and fat metabolism. It has a special function in the synthesis and breaking down of fats, as the transfer of C2 units (activated acetic acid) and the activation of long-chain fatty acids is carried out by coenzyme A. Activated acetic acid is necessary for the synthesis of phospholipids, cholesterol and several steroid hormones. The importance of pantothenic acid is also demonstrated by the fact that coenzyme A is found in all types of tissues.
