    Pseudomonas acyl-CoA synthetase is shown to act on saturated dicarboxylic acids with a chain length of C10 or greater to produce conjugates containing a single CoA unit. The synthetase can, therefore, be used to generate novel acyl-CoA analogues for studies on proteins that utilise, bind to, or are modulated by acyl-CoAs. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science B.V.
