Biosynthesis of Saturated Fatty acids Notes

Glucose entering the TCA cycle is used for the biosynthesis of saturated fatty acids by converting TCA Cycle citrate to acetyl coenzyme~A (acetyl~CoA), and then malonyl~CoA, which is used to produce palmitate. The glycerol backbone of TGs comes from glycolytic glycerol-3-phosphate. Triglycerides are the primary lipid synthesized, and serve as a starting point for other […]
