Abstract
It is necessary that the dietary uptake of fats need to be broken down by the body so as to facilitate the working of various pathways, while some are deposited in cells and used as reserve food. These are later replenished, whenever needed. In the case of cardiac cells, fatty acid oxidation or β-oxidation is very necessary for the maintenance of the electron gradient for the pumping action to take place. Like other cells, β-oxidation in the cardiac cells take place in the mitochondrial matrix, and can only be facilitated with the help of carnitine translocase (CT) that allows fatty acyl co-enzyme A in a bound form into the mitochondrial matrix. Without its presence, the fatty acyl co-enzyme A wouldn?t breakdown into substrates and fat will get deposited, either in the cytosol or the outer membrane of the mitochondria. We use Gibbs free energy and incorporate thermodynamics-based flux balance analysis to maximize the production of carnitine transcarboxylase for the purpose of manipulating the presence of fat deposition in the mitochondria to analyze its role in causing certain cardiac disorders like arrhythmia, cardiomyopathy, and hypoglycemia.
