Cytosolic acetyl-CoA (Ac-CoA) is used for lipid synthesis in adipocytes. N-acetylaspartate (NAA) is a source of Ac-CoA when catabolised in the cytosol. As no known specific NAA transporters have yet been identified, NAA translocates from the mitochondrial matrix to the cytosol by an unknown mechanism (Prokesch et al. 2016).
