TLDR
CPT2 and CACT are crucial for mitochondrial acylcarnitine formation and export to the extracellular fluids in mFAOD, and results obtained using pharmacological inhibition of CPT2 in fibroblasts from MCAD‐deficient individuals show this.
Characterization of L-aminocarnitine, an inhibitor of fatty acid oxidation.
Kinetic investigation of carnitine palmitoyltransferases in homogenates of human skeletal muscle using L-amino-carnitine and malonyl-CoA.
TLDR
It has been shown that CPT I has a higher molecular size than CPT II due to an additional N-terminal domain consisting of 150 aminoacids and that the different sensitivities of both CPTs to the two inhibitors should allow an experimental approach for the kinetic investigation of both enzymes in homogenates of human skeletal muscle.
Effect of L-carnitine and L-aminocarnitine on calcium transport, motility, and enzyme release from ejaculated bovine spermatozoa.
TLDR
It is concluded that the effects produced by high concentrations of carnitine or aminocarnitine are mainly due to interactions of these compounds with the cellular membranes of spermatozoa.
