Human erythrocyte ghosts were used for studying the mechanism of uptake and membrane transport of fatty acids. Hemoglobin-free ghosts were prepared and loaded with substrates such as CoA and/or ATP, and their ability for transporting and activating radiolabelled palmitic acid was tested further. Uptake of radiolabelled palmitic acid by CoA- and ATP-loaded ghosts exceeded that observed with ghosts loaded only with ATP, the latter being greater than that measured with non-loaded ghosts. Acyl-CoA… CONTINUE READING
