Not yet tested in other applications.
Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
FunctionCarnitine acetylase is specific for short chain fatty acids. Carnitine acetylase seems to affect the flux through the pyruvate dehydrogenase complex. It may be involved as well in the transport of acetyl-CoA into mitochondria.
Tissue specificityMostly in skeletal muscle, less in heart, liver and pancreas, only weakly detectable in brain, placenta, lung and kidney.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the carnitine/choline acetyltransferase family.
Cellular localizationMitochondrion; Peroxisome and Endoplasmic reticulum. Peroxisome. Mitochondrion inner membrane.
