Description (English)
Biochem/physiol Actions
Long-chain acylcarnitine and well-known intermediate in mitochondrial fatty acid oxidation. Modifies myocardial levels of high-energy phosphates and free fatty acids in the heart. Increases erythroid colony formation in culture. Reduces surface negative charge of erythrocytes and myocytes. Reported to affect currents and inhibit endothelium-dependent relaxation induced by acetylcholine and substance P in a dose dependent manner by suppressing the intracellular calcium signal transduction in endothelial cells.
