Where does the process of betaoxidation occur?
True or false: The following reaction is part of the digestive process.
Triglyceride + H2O ----lipase-----> 3 FA's + Glycerol
In the reaction, Fatty Acid ------betaoxidation-----> (x)Acetyl CoA, what does x equal?
The # of Acetyl CoA is one more than the # of rounds
What is the relationship between the # of Acetyl CoA and the # of rounds?
How many ATP do we lose in the initiation step of betaoxidation?
Fatty acid hookng to CoA to form Acyl CoA
In the step of betaoxidation that loses 2 ATP, what is being done?
If we have a Fatty Acid that has 24 Carbons, and it goes through betaoxidation, what will the net ATP be?
1 FADH2 and NADH
What are the important, energy-producing products of Betaoxidation?
Acyl CoA to trans-delta-Enoyl Coa
The bond between the alpha-C and beta-C gets oxidized in this step.
When we add a double bond between the alpha-C and the beta-C during betaoxidation, what gets reduced?
What is the product after the beta-C gets hydrolized?
The alcohol that was on the beta-C
In the later oxidation step of betaoxidation, what is being oxidized?
In the later oxidation step of betaoxidation, what is being reduced?
After the 2nd oxidation step of betaoxidation, what happens?
Acyl CoA and Acetyl CoA
After thiolysis, what are our two products?
Feeds into the Kreb cycle
What happens to Acetyl CoA after betaoxidation?
It undergoes more and more betaoxidations until all Cs are used up
What happens to the Acyl CoA after betaoxidation?
The ending Acyl CoA is shorter by 2 carbons
What is the difference between the starting Acyl CoA and the ending Acyl CoA?
Glycerol + ATP ----->
Dihydroxyacetone phosphate + NADH
Glycerol-3-Phosphate + NAD ----->
The alcohol on the beta carbon
What is being oxidized when we are going from Glycerol-3-Phosphate to Dihydroxyacetone phosphate?
