Isovaleryl-coenzyme A is an intermediate in branched-chain amino acids metabolism.

Metabolism in humans

Human metabolic pathway for β-hydroxy β-methylbutyric acid (HMB) and isovaleryl-CoA, relative to leucine.[1] Of the two major pathways, leucine is mostly metabolized into isovaleryl-CoA, while only 5% or so is metabolized into HMB.[1]
