The carnitine acyltransferases: modulators of acyl-CoA-dependent reactions.

Abstract

Carnitine and carnitine acyltransferases were thought to be merely a mechanism for the rapid transfer of activated long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondrion for beta-oxidation, until enzymologists came along. By kinetic, physical and localization studies, eight different mammalian carnitine acyltransferases have been characterized. Of these, five have… (More)
