CTP:phosphoethanolamine cytidylyltransferase (EC 2.7.7.14) (ethanolamine-phosphate cytidylyltransferase, ET) was recently purified to homogeneity from a post-microsomal supernatant of rat liver and subsequently used to raise a polyclonal antibody against the enzyme in rabbits (Vermeulen, P. S., Tijburg, L. B. M., Geelen, M. J. H., and van Golde, L. M. G.(More)
For two decades it has been assumed that inhibition of carnitine palmitoyltransferase I (CPT-I) by malonyl-CoA represents the main regulatory mechanism of liver ketogenesis. However, recent evidence indicates that CPT-I activity is also controlled by interactions between mitochondria and cytoskeletal components. This newly recognized mechanism emphasizes(More)
Short-term effects of 3,5-l-diiodothyronine (T2) on lipid biosynthesis were studied in cultured hepatocytes from hypothyroid rats. A comparison with the effects of T3 was routinely carried out. After T2 addition to cell cultures, a distinct stimulation of fatty acid and cholesterol syntheses, measured as incorporation of [1-14C]acetate into these lipid(More)
