  • 1 October 1983
Carnitine was detected at the beginning of this century, but it was nearly forgotten among biochemists until its importance in fatty acid metabolism was established 50 years later. In the last 30Expand

Peroxidative oxidation of leuco-dichlorofluorescein by prostaglandin H synthase in prostaglandin biosynthesis from polyunsaturated fatty acids.
Prostaglandin H synthase can oxidize arachidonic acid with leuco-dichlorofluorescein as reducing cosubstrate. Addition of 0.5 mM phenol increases the oxidation of leuco-dichlorofluorescein toExpand

Thia fatty acids, metabolism and metabolic effects.
(1) The chemical properties of thia fatty acids are similar to normal fatty acids, but their metabolism (see below: points 2-6) and metabolic effects (see below: points 7-15) differ greatly fromExpand

The effect of fasting on palmitoyl-CoA: carnitine palmitoyltransferase (EC 2.3.1.21) in rat liver mitochondria and its inhibition by malonyl-CoA has been investigated. The activity of the outerExpand

Metabolic aspects of peroxisomal beta-oxidation.
In the course of the last decade peroxisomal beta-oxidation has emerged as a metabolic process indispensable to normal physiology. Peroxisomes beta-oxidize fatty acids, dicarboxylic acids,Expand

Free acetate production by rat hepatocytes during peroxisomal fatty acid and dicarboxylic acid oxidation.
The fate of the acetyl-CoA units released during peroxisomal fatty acid oxidation was studied in isolated hepatocytes from normal and peroxisome-proliferated rats. Ketogenesis and hydrogen peroxideExpand

Peroxisomal fatty acid oxidation and inhibitors of the mitochondrial carnitine palmitoyltransferase I in isolated rat hepatocytes.
Fatty acid oxidation was studied in the presence of inhibitors of carnitine palmitoyltransferase I (CPT I), in normal and in peroxisome-proliferated rat hepatocytes. The oxidation decreased inExpand
