Fatty acid (FA) uniport via mitochondrial uncoupling protein (UcP) was detected fluorometrically with PBFI, potassium-binding benzofuran phthalate and SPQ, 6-methoxy-N-(3-sulfopropyl)-quinolinium, indicating K+ and H+, respectively. The FA structural patterns required for FA flip-flop, UcP-mediated FA uniport, activation of UcP-mediated H+...

The formation of omega-hydroxylauric acid from lauric acid is an indicator of the activity of cytochrome P-450 IV family proteins. The two main metabolites of lauric acid, (omega-1)-and omega-hydroxylauric acid, have been completely separated by reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography. Measurement...
