The Carnitine Transporter Network: Interactions with Drugs
TLDR
The current knowledge of the characterization of the carnitine transporter network and the interaction with drugs are reviewed with emphasis to the most recent data obtained using the proteoliposome reconstituted systems.
Characteristics of L-carnitine import into heart cells.
Structural and Biochemical Studies of the Substrate Selectivity of Carnitine Acetyltransferase*
TLDR
Kinetic studies confirm that the M 564G or M564A mutation is sufficient to increase the activity of the enzyme toward medium-chain substrates with hexanoyl-CoA being the preferred substrate for the M5 64G mutant, and crystal structures of two of these mutants reveal a deep binding pocket that can accommodate the larger acyl group.
Characterization of carnitine and fatty acid metabolism in the long-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase-deficient mouse.
TLDR
It is concluded that the cardiomyopathy in the LCAD-/- mouse is caused primarily by a severe energy deficiency in the heart, stressing the important role of LCAD in cardiac fatty acid metabolism in the mouse.
A Novel Mitochondrial Carnitine-acylcarnitine Translocase Induced by Partial Hepatectomy and Fasting*
TLDR
A novel mammalian protein homologous to CACT, designated as CACL (CACT-like), is localized to the mitochondria and has palmitoylcarnitine transporting activity and may be specialized for the metabolism of a distinct class of fatty acids involved in brain function.
Structure and Function of Carnitine Acyltransferases
TLDR
The crystal structures of murine CrAT are determined, providing a molecular basis for understanding the catalysis by carnitine acyltransferases and for designing their inhibitors, and structural information suggests that the substrate Carnitine may assist theCatalysis by stabilizing the oxyanion in the reaction intermediate.
Structure of Human Carnitine Acetyltransferase
TLDR
The x-ray structure of human carnitine acetyltransferase provides critical insights into the molecular basis for fatty acyl chain transfer and a possible common mechanism among a wide range of acyltransferases utilizing a catalytic dyad.

Comparison of the active sites of the purified carnitine acyltransferases from peroxisomes and mitochondria by using a reaction-intermediate analogue.
TLDR
The kinetic mechanisms and kinetic parameters for the carnitine acyl transferases purified from peroxisomes and from the mitochondrial inner membrane were determined and support the concept of three binding domains for the acyltransferases, a CoA site, an acyl site and a Carnitine site.
Molecular Biology of Carnitine Palmitoyltransferases and Role of Carnitine in Gene Transcription
TLDR
Information available on aspects of carnitine acyltransferases, including the characterization of the various CPTs and of the mutations involved in related genetic diseases are greatly aiding the understanding of the structure-function relationships.

TLDR
The results indicate that the carnitine-dependent translocation of acyl groups across mitochondrial inner membrane involves the participation of a carn itine acylcarnitine translocase system.
Some kinetic studies on the mechanism of action of carnitine acetyltransferase.
TLDR
It is concluded that the mechanism of action of carnitine acetyltransferase involves four binary and two or more ternary enzyme complexes in rapid equilibrium with free substrates, the interconversion of the ternARY complexes being the rate-limiting step.
