Discuss in detail β-oxidation of saturated fatty acids with energetics.


Lipid metabolism

  • Beta – oxidation of saturated fatty acid ( palmitic acid)
  • The beta – oxidation of fatty acid involves three stage
    1). activation of fatty acids involves in the cytosol.
    2). Transport of fatty acids into mitochondria.
    3). Beta oxidation proper in the mitochondria matrix.
  • Beta oxidation of palmitic acid
  • Oxidation of palmitoyl CoA
  • Energetic of palmitic add oxidation
