Effects of dietary carnitine on myocardial palmitate oxidation in the aging rat.

Abstract

Aging is associated with decreases in myocardial fatty acid oxidation and carnitine concentration. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of dietary carnitine manipulation on myocardial palmitate oxidation and carnitine content in young adult and middle-aged rats. Rats were fed either a carnitine-free or a carnitine-supplemented diet for… (More)
