Abstract

A study of the oxidation of palmitate-1-C14 to C14O2 by heart homogenates was undertaken and the optimal conditions were determined. The system has an absolute requirement for carnitine, CoA, ATP, and Mg2+. The levels of ATP and Mg2+ for the optimal rate of palmitate oxidation are interdependent. Excess of ATP or Mg2+ inhibits the production of CO2. The amount of fatty acid oxidized is dependent on the molar ratio of fatty acid to albumin in the incubation medium: an optimal ratio of approximately 5 was found for all the concentrations of fatty acid and albumin tested. A tentative mechanism for the albumin effect is presented.
