Purification of carnitine acetyltransferase from skeletal muscle of the camel (Camelus dromedarius)

Abstract

The enzyme carnitine acetyltransferase (CAT) catalyzes the reversible transfer of short-chain acyl groups between coenzyme A and L-carnitine, and hence, plays an important role in the β-oxidation of fatty acids. Purification and characterization of CAT from desert animal species may help in explaining the involvement of secondary pathways for energy… (More)
