Interaction Information:

Comment On the basis of the pronounced C5 peak the study evaluated skeletal muscle expression of isovaleryl-CoA dehydrogenase (IVD) and HMG-CoA lyase (HMGCL), mitochondrial enzymes required for leucine catabolism to acetyl-CoA. Consistent with the metabolite profiles, a starvation-induced increase in IVD expression was observed in the PPARalpha null mice but not in the wild-type controls. HMGCL was unaffected by genotype.
