Carnitine translocase in cardiac cell: structural, functional and flux balance analysis in pre-ß-oxidation pathway of Homo sapiens



Fats are stored in the body in the form of fatty acids and reused whenever the body is unable to consume essential fats (at the time of exercise, fasting etc). In the human heart cell, the transport of certain fatty acids into the mitochondria is required to produce energy. This is done via a certain enzyme called Carnitine Translocase. This work deals with the detection and manipulation of carnitine translocase in order to analyze its importance in avoiding certain cardiovascular disorders like hyperglycemia, arrhythmia etc.
