Glycerophosphate and carnitine as competing acyl acceptors and the oxidation of different long chain acylcarnitines in isolated mitochondria have been investigated. In the presence of low concentrations of palmitate, glycerophosphate is the preferred acyl acceptor in isolated liver mitochondria, indicating that the glycerophosphate acyltransferase has a… CONTINUE READING
