Fatty-acid synthase from rat liver.
Publisher Summary The fatty acid synthase complex exists in mammalian and avian liver in the soluble portion of the cell. Negligible activity for the de novo synthesis of fatty acids is associatedExpand

The purification and properties of the fatty acid synthetase of pigeon liver.
The fatty acid synthetase of pigeon liver catalyzes the conversion of acetyland malonyl-coenzyme A to long chain saturated fatty acids in the presence of reduced nicotinamide adenine dinucleotideExpand

The effects of nutritional and hormonal factors on the fatty acid synthetase level of rat liver.
Abstract The rise in fatty acid synthesizing capacity of the liver which is observed on realimentation of fasting rats with a fat-free diet has been studied. The rise to supranormal levels has beenExpand

The effect of palmityl coenzyme A on pigeon liver fatty acid synthetase.
Abstract Because of the rather widespread interest in palmityl coenzyme A as a possible physiological inhibitor of a large number of enzymes, we have further investigated the inhibition of pigeonExpand

Control of the synthesis of fatty-acid synthetase in rat liver by insulin, glucagon, and adenosine 3':5' cyclic monophosphate.
The usual increase in the activity of liver fatty-acid synthetase that occurs on refeeding of a fat-free diet to previously fasted rats is abolished in diabetic animals. Insulin specifically restoresExpand

Effect of dietary change on the rates of synthesis and degradation of rat liver fatty acid synthetase.
Abstract Investigations were carried out to determine whether diet-induced changes in the level of rat liver fatty acid synthetase are due to changes in the rate of synthesis or degradation of thisExpand

Factors affecting the diurnal variation in the level of -hydroxy- -methylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase and cholesterol-synthesizing activity in rat liver.
Abstract It has been demonstrated through kinetic analysis that the diurnal variation in β-hydroxy-β-methylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase activity in rat liver microsomes is produced by changes in theExpand
