comment Why are Taurine and Arginine essential components of the feline diet?
Arginine is not essential for adult humans. Cats and dogs probably (I don't know for certain but I'm guessing) require arginine because of its crucial role in the urea cycle and their high rate of ammonia production as a result of amino acid catabolism for energy production.

comment Other than Acetylcarnitine what other orally-bioavailable Acetyl donors exist to assist in the conversion of CoA to acetyl-CoA?
You have a good point but it would be just exquisite if you could find some evidence to support the idea that a significant amount of these acetyl-CoA's are used by histone acetyltransferase and thus influence gene expression.

Are these reactions solely those that occur in the human body?
