Biochem/physiol Actions

L-Palmitoylcarnitine can change the activity of several enzymes and transporters, localized in the membrane and facilitates the transfer of long-chain fatty acids from cytoplasm into mitochondria during the oxidation of fatty acids. L-Palmitoylcarnitine accumulates in ischemic myocardium and potentially contribute to myocardial damage through alterations in membrane molecular dynamics.
