Interaction Information:

Comment In the JVS mouse model of primary carnitine deficiency hepatic transcript levels of glycolytic enzymes such as glucokinase and pyruvate kinase are reduced, whereas hepatic transcript level of the gluconeogenic enzyme phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase (PCK1) is increased in this genetic model of carnitine deficiency.
