This occurs via a series of similar steps: carnitine by carnitine palmitoyltransferase I
Acyl carnitine is converted to acyl CoA by carnitine palmitoyltransferase II β-Oxidation
We recently made a breakthrough in this area by publishing the first high resolution structure of serine palmitoyltransferase (
