Metabolite Identification
Common Name Valproyl-CoA
Description Valproyl-CoA, a valproate metabolite previously identified in liver, may accumulate in brain as a result of normal fatty acid turnover processes. Valproyl CoA could contribute to valproate's antiepileptic activity by stimulating Na+, K+-ATPase activity when brain ATP concentration is low. Valproyl-CoA and to a much lesser extent 3-keto-valproyl-CoA are the main metabolites of VPA in mitochondria.
