United States-based Gilead Sciences has revealed results from a Phase two, randomised, placebo-controlled trial assessing two doses of GS-0976, an oral, investigational inhibitor of Acetyl-CoA carboxylase intended for patients with non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), it was reported yesterday.
today announced results from a Phase 2, randomized, placebo-controlled trial evaluating two doses of GS-0976, an oral, investigational inhibitor of Acetyl-CoA carboxylase (ACC), in patients with nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH).
The scientists demonstrated that the described inhibition of ACC1 leads to the accumulation of the fatty acid precursor acetyl-CoA.
Since the ratio of oxaloacetate/ Acetyl-CoA the major factor governing glu production, changes to this ratio may be instrumental in gearing up NIAB SS-27 for glu production.
Lawitz, MD, reported the promising results of a "proof of concept" open-label study in which the safety and efficacy of 12 weeks' treatment with the oral acetyl-CoA carboxylase (ACC) inhibitor, GS-0976, was examined in 10 patients with a clinical diagnosis of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).
Moreover, L-carnitine has also shown antioxidant properties that protect sperm membranes against toxic reactive oxygen species probably via interfering arachidonic acid incorporation into phospholipids and protein kinase C mediated nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADPH) oxidase system, removing toxic levels of intracellular acetyl-CoA and by replacing fatty acids in membrane phospholipids.
In a thiolase-mediated reaction, 2 molecules of acetyl-CoA condense to form acetoacetyl-CoA, and subsequently 3-hydroxy, 3methylglutaryl-CoA (3-HMG-CoA).
The genes encoding levels of Acetyl-CoA carboxylase (ACC), fatty acid synthase (FAS) and carnitine palmitoyltransferase (CPT) 1 were respectively involved in the regulation of FAS and oxidation.
As Schizochytrium is a slow growing heterotroph consuming glucose at a slow rate, wai cultivation in a non carbon catabolite repression condition or in an increased acetyl-CoA synthethase state gives rise to higher growth and glucose consumption rates (27).
The ACAT2 gene is involved with producing Acetyl-CoA C-acetyltransferase.
At the same time, carnitine palmitoyltransferase-I, carnitine palmitoyltransferase-II, acetyl-coa carboxylase, lipase activity, and lipoprotein lipase in fish tissues were monitored.
