  1. Ide T, Kobayashi H, Ashakumary L, Rouyer I, Takahashi Y, Aoyama T, et al. Comparative effects of perilla and fish oils on the activity and gene expression of fatty acid oxidation enzymes in rat liver. Biochim Biophys Acta. 2000;1485:23-35 pubmed
    ..Dietary perilla oil and fish oil therefore exert similar physiological activity in modulating hepatic fatty acid oxidation, but these dietary fats considerably differ in affecting fatty acid synthesis. ..
  2. Fukao T, Yamaguchi S, Orii T, Schutgens R, Osumi T, Hashimoto T. Identification of three mutant alleles of the gene for mitochondrial acetoacetyl-coenzyme A thiolase. A complete analysis of two generations of a family with 3-ketothiolase deficiency. J Clin Invest. 1992;89:474-9 pubmed
    ..The brother of patient 2 is an obligatory carrier with the mutant allele causing the exon 8 skipping. This report seems to be the first complete molecular definition of 3KTD at the gene level. ..
  3. Fukao T, Yamaguchi S, Orii T, Osumi T, Hashimoto T. Molecular basis of 3-ketothiolase deficiency: identification of an AG to AC substitution at the splice acceptor site of intron 10 causing exon 11 skipping. Biochim Biophys Acta. 1992;1139:184-8 pubmed
    ..When the PCR-amplified genomic fragments around exon 11 were sequenced, an AG to AC mutation at the 3' splice site of intron 10 was detected. This mutation is presumed to be responsible for exon 11 skipping. ..
  4. Uchida Y, Izai K, Orii T, Hashimoto T. Novel fatty acid beta-oxidation enzymes in rat liver mitochondria. II. Purification and properties of enoyl-coenzyme A (CoA) hydratase/3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase/3-ketoacyl-CoA thiolase trifunctional protein. J Biol Chem. 1992;267:1034-41 pubmed
    ..Therefore, it is concluded that this enzyme is not long-chain 3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase; rather, it is enoyl-CoA hydratase/3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase/3-ketoacyl-CoA thiolase trifunctional protein. ..
  5. Fukao T, Yamaguchi S, Kano M, Orii T, Fujiki Y, Osumi T, et al. Molecular cloning and sequence of the complementary DNA encoding human mitochondrial acetoacetyl-coenzyme A thiolase and study of the variant enzymes in cultured fibroblasts from patients with 3-ketothiolase deficiency. J Clin Invest. 1990;86:2086-92 pubmed
    ..These results suggest that different mechanisms are involved in the enzyme defects in the four patients. ..
  6. Fukao T, Yamaguchi S, Orii T, Hashimoto T. Molecular basis of beta-ketothiolase deficiency: mutations and polymorphisms in the human mitochondrial acetoacetyl-coenzyme A thiolase gene. Hum Mutat. 1995;5:113-20 pubmed
    ..A correlation between clinical phenotype and genotype in T2 deficiency seems unlikely. ..
  7. Abe H, Ohtake A, Yamamoto S, Satoh Y, Takayanagi M, Amaya Y, et al. Cloning and sequence analysis of a full length cDNA encoding human mitochondrial 3-oxoacyl-CoA thiolase. Biochim Biophys Acta. 1993;1216:304-6 pubmed
    ..6% homology with that of the rat enzyme. Northern blot analysis gave a single mRNA species of 1.6 kb in the human liver, fibroblasts and intercostal muscle. ..
