Fatty acyl-coenzyme A's are temporarily converted into fatty acylcarnitines while transferred across the inner mitochondrial membrane, in their catabolic pathway. In search of an explanation for the need of this coenzyme exchange, the present work describes comparatively the abilities of both kinds of fatty acyl derivatives (represented by palmitoyl-coenzyme A and palmitoylcarnitine) in binding to and perturbing the structure of phosphatidylcholine bilayers in the form of large unilamellar… CONTINUE READING
