The effect of malonyl-CoA on overt and latent carnitine acyltransferase activities in rat liver and adipocyte mitochondria.


ABSTRACT: 1. Carnitine palmitoyltransferase and carnitine octanoyltransferase activities were measured in mitochondria at various acyl-CoA concentrations before and after sonication, thus permitting assessment of both overt and latent activities. 2. Overt carnitine palmitoyltransferase in liver and adipocyte mitochondria and overt carnitine octanoyltransferase in liver mitochondria were inhibited by malonyl-CoA. None of the latent activities were affected by this metabolite. 3. 5,5'-Dithiobis-(2-nitrobenzoic acid) stimulated latent hepatic carnitine palmitoyltransferase at low [palmitoyl-CoA]. 4. Starvation (24 h) decreased overt carnitine palmitoyltransferase activity in adipocyte mitochondria, but did not alter the sensitivity of this activity to malonyl-CoA.
