  • Fatty acid oxidation rates tend to increase with age in most developing tissues. In skeletal muscle, heart, and liver of developing rats, we measured activities of three acyl-CoA dehydrogenase enzymes, which constitute the first step in the mitochondrial beta-oxidation sequence. In skeletal muscle, activities of all three enzymes increased with age. In heart muscle, palmityl-CoA dehydrogenase increased, while the other two enzymes changed only minimally. In liver, palmityl-CoA dehydrogenase… CONTINUE READING
