We have isolated the Drosophila melanogaster gene encoding the mitochondrial acyl carrier protein (mtACP), a subunit of NADH:ubiquinone oxidoreductase involved in de novo fatty acid synthesis in the mitochondrion. This gene expresses two distinct mature transcripts by alternative splicing, which encode mature polypeptides of 86 (mtACP1A) and 88 (mtACP1B… CONTINUE READING
