A simple mathematical model is proposed to explain the inhibition of beta-oxidation and of the tricarboxylic acid cycle by excess of fatty acids. This model is based on the peculiar stoichiometry of beta-oxidation reactions, which accounts for the formation of dynamical traps for free CoA and its esters in the form of 3-ketoacyl-CoA derivatives. It follows(More)
Oxidation of pyruvate and palmitoylcarnitine in mitochondria is accompanied by the formation of acetyl-CoA, with its possible participation in the acetylation of various proteins and enzymes that may lead to the inhibition of their functions. This paper studies the effect of the excess of these substrates on respiration and induction of mitochondrial(More)
