In view of the importance of long chain fatty acids (LCFAs) to many cellular processes, it may be desirable to regulate the LCFA disposition in the cell. Such regulation may be present at the level of the plasma membrane, since a number of putative LCFA transport proteins have been cloned. The development of a model system of giant vesicles has proven to be important in identifying the metabolic role of the LCFA transport system. LCFA transport rates and transporters (FABPpm and FAT/CD36) are… CONTINUE READING
