Metabolite Identification
Common NameHeptadecanoyl CoA
DescriptionHeptadecanoyl CoA is an intermediate in lipid metabolism. The protein carnitine palmitoyltransferase II (mitochondrial) irreversibly transports heptadecanoate into the mitochondria. In the mitochondria, the enzyme acyl-CoA dehydrogenase [EC:1.3.99.3] catalyzes the irreversible catabolism of this metabolite to acetyl-CoA and propanoyl-CoA. In the cytosol, the enzyme carnitine O-palmitoyltransferase [EC:2.3.1.21] catalyzes the irreversible conversion of this metabolite to heptadecanoyl carnitine and the enzyme long-chain-fatty-acid-CoA ligase [EC:6.2.1.3] reversibly catalyzes the production of this metabolite from heptadecanoate.

Gene Name:

Uniprot ID:
Q9NZ20
Molecular weight:
57166.51
General function:
Involved in thiolester hydrolase activity
Specific function:
Involved in bile acid metabolism. In liver hepatocytes catalyzes the second step in the conjugation of C24 bile acids (choloneates) to glycine and taurine before excretion into bile canaliculi. The major components of bile are cholic acid and chenodeoxycholic acid. In a first step the bile acids are converted to an acyl-CoA thioester, either in peroxisomes (primary bile acids deriving from the cholesterol pathway), or cytoplasmic at the endoplasmic reticulum (secondary bile acids). May catalyze the conjugation of primary or secondary bile acids, or both. The conjugation increases the detergent properties of bile acids in the intestine, which facilitates lipid and fat-soluble vitamin absorption. In turn, bile acids are deconjugated by bacteria in the intestine and are recycled back to the liver for reconjugation (secondary bile acids). May also act as an acyl-CoA thioesterase that regulates intracellular levels of free fatty acids. In vitro, catalyzes the hydrolysis of long- and very long-chain saturated acyl-CoAs to the free fatty acid and coenzyme A (CoASH), and conjugates glycine to these acyl-CoAs.

Transporters

General function:
Lipid transport and metabolism
Specific function:
Involved in translocation of long-chain fatty acids (LFCA) across the plasma membrane. The LFCA import appears to be hormone-regulated in a tissue-specific manner. In adipocytes, but not myocytes, insulin induces a rapid translocation of FATP1 from intracellular compartments to the plasma membrane, paralleled by increased LFCA uptake. May act directly as a bona fide transporter, or alternatively, in a cytoplasmic or membrane- associated multimeric protein complex to trap and draw fatty acids towards accumulation. Plays a pivotal role in regulating available LFCA substrates from exogenous sources in tissues undergoing high levels of beta-oxidation or triglyceride synthesis. May be involved in regulation of cholesterol metabolism. Has acyl-CoA ligase activity for long-chain and very-long-chain fatty acids
