Under conditions favoring lipogenesis, a high-molecular-weight species of acetyl-CoA carboxylase was isolated that did not co-sediment with the in vitro polymerized enzyme. Assays for ATP-citrate lyase, acetyl-CoA carboxylase, and fatty acid synthetase indicated that all three enzymes were associated together as a high-molecular-weight complex and that under low-lipogenic conditions the level of these enzymes decreased. Phosphorylation of the isolated complex shifted it toward a lower molecular weight.
