Thyroid hormone regulates carnitine palmitoyltransferase Ialpha gene expression through elements in the promoter and first intron.


Carnitine palmitoyltransferase I (CPT-I) catalyzes the transfer of long chain fatty acyl groups from CoA to carnitine for translocation across the mitochondrial inner membrane. CPT-Ialpha is a key regulatory enzyme in the oxidation of fatty acids in the liver. CPT-Ialpha is expressed in all tissues except skeletal muscle and adipose tissue, which express… (More)
