Acetyl-CoA carboxylase α (ACC1), the major regulatory enzyme of fatty acid biosynthesis, catalyzes the conversion of acetyl-CoA to malonyl-CoA. The full-length cDNA coding ACC1 isoform was cloned from liver of grass carp. The cDNA obtained was 7515bp with a 7173bp open reading frame encoding 2389 amino acids. The ACC1 protein has a calculated molecular weight of 269.2kDa and isoelectric point of 6.23. Tissue distribution of ACC1 mRNA in brain, mesenteric adipose, spleen, white muscle and liver… CONTINUE READING
