Carnitine-acylcarnitine translocase


Carnitine-acylcarnitine translocase (CACT) is part of the carnitine shuttle which mediates the mitochondrial transport of long-chain fatty acids where the fatty acid oxidation occurs. CACT is an internal mt-IM protein and transports acylcarnitines into the mitochondrial matrix in exchange for free carnitine.
