  • NSC 628323
  • Palmitoyl-DL-carnitine chloride

DL-Palmitoylcarnitine (chloride) is a long-chain acylcarnitine with both intracellular and extracellular roles. Within the cell, palmitoylcarnitine is transported into mitochondria to deliver palmitate for fatty acid oxidation and energy production.1 Exogenously added DL-palmitoylcarnitine alters calcium mobilization in many cell types.2,3,4 It also affects endothelial and epithelial tight junctions, reducing resistance and increasing permeability while decreasing cell viability.5,6
