25325845 The antiport mode of transport, typical of mitochondrial carriers such as CAC, results from coupling of uniport reactions in opposite directions mediated by specific amino acid residues.
24088670 C.576G>A, c.106-2a>t and c.516T>C are novel CACT gene mutations.
23322164 CPT2 and CACT are crucial for mitochondrial acylcarnitine formation and export to the extracellular fluids in mitochondrial fatty acid beta-oxidation disorders.
23266187 Compares and contrasts all the known human SLC25A* genes and includes functional information.
22560224 Results show Steroid Receptor Coactivator-3 (SRC-3) plays a central role in long chain fatty acid metabolism by directly regulating carnitine/acyl-carnitine translocase (CACT) gene expression.
21130740 These results show that FOXA and Sp1 sites in HepG2 cells and only the Sp1 site in HEK293 and SK-N-SH cells have a critical role in the transcriptional regulation of the CAC proximal promoter.
