AbstractBackgroundHeart failure (HF) and non-cardiac comorbidities often coexist and are known to have an adverse effect on outcome.

Abstract Coenzyme A (CoA) is an indispensable cofactor in all living organisms. It is synthesized in an evolutionarily conserved pathway by enzymatic conjugation of cysteine, pantothenate (Vitamin B5), and ATP. This unique chemical structure allows CoA to employ its highly reactive thiol group for diverse biochemical reactions. The involvement of the CoA thiol group in the production of metabolically active CoA thioesters (e.g. acetyl CoA, malonyl CoA, and HMG CoA) and activation of carbonyl-containing compounds has been extensively studied since the discovery of this cofactor in the middle of the last century. We...
