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.
20877624 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
19748481 PPARalpha regulates the expression of human SLC25A20 via the peroxisome proliferator responsive element.
18307102 Functional analysis of mutations of residues Pro278 and Ala279 in A. nidulans, together with kinetic data in reconstituted liposomes, suggest a predominant structural role for these amino acids.
17508264 Report the outcome of two siblings with CACT deficiency.
15515015 The modulation of CACT expression has consequences for CPT 1 activity, while the biologic effects of acetyl-carnitine are not associated with a generic supply of energy compounds but to the anaplerotic property of the molecule.
15365988 The clinical, biochemical, & molecular features of 6 CACT-deficient patients from Italy, Spain, & North America who had significant clinical heterogeneity are reported. 5 novel & 3 previously reported mutations were found.
15057979 A deficiency in CACT was treated with a carnitine diet and administration of medium-chain triglycerides.
