Of the different chain length fatty acyl-CoA substrates, octanoyl-CoA has been known as one of the most efficient (and physiological) substrates for the medium-chain fatty acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (MCAD)-catalyzed reaction. The reaction of MCAD-FAD with octanoyl-CoA ([MCAD-FAD] << [octanoyl-CoA]), measured via the stopped-flow technique, at 5 degrees C was characterized by a biphasic decrease and increase in absorptions at 450 and 545 nm, respectively. The average values of the fast (1/tau 1) and… CONTINUE READING
