Rate-limiting Description

"The mode of action of these compounds in the 50-100 microM concentration range appeared to be by increasing lipid excretion from the body and by inhibiting rate-limiting enzyme activities for the de novo synthesis of lipids and cholesterol (e.g., phosphatidylate phosphohydrolase, ATP-dependent citrate lyase, cytoplasmic acetyl coenzyme A ." (CoA synthetase, HMG CoA reductase, and acetyl CoA carboxylase))

"These data indicate preferential localization of ATP-citrate lyase in cholinergic nerve endings, and indicate that this enzyme is not a rate limiting step in the synthesis of the acetyl moiety of ACh in brain.." (6109001)

"The effect of thyroparathyroidectomy (TPTX) on ATP citrate lyase regulation, a rate-limiting enzyme of fatty acid synthesis in hepatic cytosol, was investigated in rats refed after a 24 h fast." (3108130)
