Current Concepts in Carnitine Research is based on the proceedings of a symposium on carnitine research presented by the School of Medicine, Medical College of Georgia, April 20-21, 1991. The book is intended to introduce areas of carnitine research and explore key clinical and basic aspects of carnitine metabolism. The four major topics covered are carnitine and the heart; the structure, function, and regulation of carnitine palmitoyl transferase; functions of the short chain carnitine acyltransferase; and areas of carnitine research. This information is essential for physicians and biochemists studying intermediate metabolism, nutritionists involved in dietary nanuplication, and cardiology researchers, especially those studying cardiomyopathy.
