Carnitine palmitoyltransferase 2: analysis of membrane association and complex structure with a substrate analog.


The mitochondrial membrane-associated carnitine palmitoyltransferase system is a validated target for the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus. To further facilitate structure-based drug discovery, we determined the crystal structure of rat CPT-2 (rCPT-2) in complex with the substrate analogue palmitoyl-aminocarnitine at 1.8A resolution.
