Aliphatic acylearnitines isolated from a water-soluble fraction of beef heart have been characterized by gas chromatography and mass spectrometry. The following acyl residues derived from the acylcarnitine fraction were unequivocally identified: acetyl, propionyl, isobutyryl, butyryl, alpha-methylbutyryl, valeryl, isovaleryl, tiglyl, and caproyl. beta-methylcrotonyl and methacrylyl were tentatively identified. This occurrence of considerable quantities of branched-chain acylcarnitines indicates a role for carnitine in branched-chain amino acid metabolism.
