Pyruvate Reversal of S-Ethyl Dipropylcarbamothioate (EPTC) Inhibition of Pyruvate Dehydrogenase Complex

  • R. E. Wilkinson

Abstract

EPTC decreased fatty acid synthesis and desaturation (1-3), entkaurene synthesis and oxidation (4, 5) and total isoprenoid pigment quinone, chlorophyll, and contents (6, 7). Commonality of substrates and cofactors in these diversified biosynthetic processes includes Ac-, O2, NADPH and/or NADH, and ATP. EPTC did not inhibit photosynthesis (8); thus, it is presumed that O2, NADPH and/or NADH, and ATP are probably not limiting for these biosynthetic processes.
