We investigated whether the age-related impairment of cardiac fatty acid catabolism occurs, at least partially, through diminished levels of L-carnitine, which would adversely affect carnitine palmitoyltransferase 1 (CPT1), the rate-limiting enzyme for fatty acyl-CoA uptake into mitochondria for beta]-oxidation.
This decrease in total activity in response to the olive oil- and corn oil-enriched diets but not to the coconut oil-enriched diet could be due to the inhibitory effect of long-chain unsaturated fatty acyl-CoA on the synthesis and/or stability of acetyl-CoA mRNA, similar to that observed in the weaned rats [29].
