Inhibition of fatty acid synthesis by the antibiotic cerulenin. Specific inactivation of beta-ketoacyl-acyl carrier protein synthetase.
Abstract Cerulenin, (2S) (3R)2,3-epoxy-4-oxo-7,10-dodecadienoylamide, an antibiotic isolated from the culture filtrate of Cephalosporium caerulens, inhibits the fatty acid synthetase of EscherichiaExpand

The specificity of triglyceride synthesis from diglycerides in chicken adipose tissue.
The evidence presently available indicates that the final step in the synthesis of triglycerides in liver is the esterification of an Q: ,/3-diglyceride by an activated fatty acid (I, 2). Weiss,Expand

The polypeptide composition of intra-axonally transported proteins: evidence for four transport velocities.
Using a method of gradient gel electrophoresis coupled with autoradiography, we have analyzed the polypeptide composition of the proteins being transported down the axons of the projecting neurons ofExpand

The mechanism of tricarboxylic acid cycle regulation of fatty acid synthesis.
Reaction 1, the carboxylation of acety-CoA to form malonylCo& is catalyzed by acetyl-CoA carboxylase, a biotin enzyme (l-6). Reaction 2, the reaction of acetyl-CoA with 7 moles of malonyl-CoA and 14Expand

Effect of dietary linoleate on synthesis and degradation of fatty acid synthetase from rat liver.
The induction of fatty acid synthetase activity in rat liver is markedly reduced by feeding a diet containing a source of linoleate. Within 48 h after changing from a fat-free, high carbohydrate dietExpand

Role of adenylate kinase in the regulation of macromolecular biosynthesis in a putative mutant of Escherichia coli defective in membrane phospholipid biosynthesis.
The regulation of macromolecular biosynthesis was studied in a temperature-sensitive mutant of Escherichia coli previously identified as containing a single mutation causing a thermolabileExpand
