Genomic distribution of three promoters of the bovine gene encoding acetyl-CoA carboxylase alpha and evidence that the nutritionally regulated promoter I contains a repressive element different from that in rat.


The enzyme acetyl-CoA carboxylase alpha (ACC-alpha) is rate-limiting for the synthesis of long-chain fatty acids de novo. As a first characterization of the bovine gene encoding this enzyme, we established the entire bovine ACC-alpha cDNA sequence (7041 bp) and used experiments with 5' rapid amplification of cDNA ends to determine the heterogeneous… (More)
