Structure of carnitine acetyltransferase.
Carnitine O-palmitoyltransferase (also called carnitine palmitoyltransferase) is a mitochondrial transferase enzyme (EC 18.104.22.168) involved in the metabolism of palmitoylcarnitine into palmitoyl-CoA. A related transferase is carnitine acyltransferase.
There are four different forms of CPT in humans:
- CPT1A – associated with Carnitine palmitoyltransferase I deficiency
- CPT2 – associated with carnitine palmitoyltransferase II deficiency
- PDOC00402 – Acyltransferases ChoActase / COT / CPT family in PROSITE
- Choline/Carnitine o-acyltransferase family[permanent dead link] in Pfam
