Background Information

PC(pyruvate carboxylase) is a member of the family of biotin-dependent carboxylases and is found widely among eukaryotic tissues and in many prokaryotic species. It catalyses the ATP-dependent carboxylation of pyruvate to form oxaloacetate which may be utilised in the synthesis of glucose, fat, some amino acids or their derivatives and several neurotransmitters. Diabetes and hyperthyroidism increase the level of expression of pyruvate carboxylase in the long term, while its activity in the short term is controlled by the intramitochondrial concentrations of acetyl-CoA and pyruvate(PMID:9597748).
