Possible Interaction: Carnitine and Long Chain Fatty Acid

supplement:

Carnitine

Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

Carnitine reinforces the utilization of long chain fatty acids and thus improves the energy conversion.
Infusionstherapie und klinische Ernahrung  •  1986  |  View Paper
Carnitine stimulates the catabolism of long-chain fatty acids (FAs), by transporting them to mitochondria for oxidation, and the intracellular decomposition of branched-chain ketoacids.
Developmental period medicine  •  2014  |  View Paper
Lower free carnitine levels in soybean oil-based group is the result of carnitine need during the mitochondrial transport of long chain fatty acids.
Early human development  •  2012  |  View Paper
Carnitine has an essential role in the mitochondrial oxidation of long-chain fatty acids.
Advances in peritoneal dialysis. Conference on Peritoneal Dialysis  •  2006  |  View Paper
Since the carnitine plays a regulatory role in the mitochondrial oxidation of the long chain fatty acids , loss of OCTN2 function lead to severe impairment of the intracellular metabolism at biochemical level, which can explain the development of a severe, even life threatening condition.

In contrast, it is suggested that the availability of free carnitine may play a major regulatory role in oxidation of LCFA during exercise.
Acta physiologica Scandinavica  •  2003  |  View Paper
BACKGROUND Carnitine , a quaternary amino acid, plays an important role in the oxidation of long chain fatty acids.
The Cochrane database of systematic reviews  •  2000  |  View Paper
Raising carnitine levels could improve substrate delivery for mitochondrial β-oxidation of long-chain fatty acids , thus reducing the use of VLCFA as substrates for β-oxidation.
European Journal of Pediatrics  •  1999  |  View Paper
Whenever long-chain fatty acids are to be used for energy generation, their binding to carnitine is mandatory for their translocation into the mitochondria (Fig. 2).
European journal of clinical investigation  •  1997  |  View Paper
Soon after the role of carnitine in facilitating /3-oxidation of long-chain fatty acids was identified, altered carnitine status of patients treated with hemodialysis compared with that of healthy individuals was interpreted by several investigators as a state of carnitine deficiency (2).
The hypothesis seems plausible if the major function of carnitine is to facilitate a-oxidation of long-chain fatty acids.
