Fatty Acid Metabolism Part II 1) What are the reactions involved in the fatty acid oxidation pathway a. Oxidation, hydration, oxidation, and thioolysis Lect 20 sld 1 2) Where does fatty acid oxidation take place? Does the Peroxisome oxidize fatty acids in the same manner? Sounds like a true and fals question a. Fatty acid oxidation takes place in the mitochondria. Lect 20 sld 3 b. No, the peroxisome oxidizes fatty acids by a different process. Lct 20 slide 2 3) Why is acyl-CoA dehydrogenase misnamed? a. It’s misnamed because it’s actually an oxidase. The electrons are passed on to oxygen. If it was a hydrogenase, the electrons from the Hydrogens would have been passed on to a pyridine nucleotide (NAD or NADP) or to another protein. 4) In the first oxidation step, what is the electron receptor? How is the electron acceptor oxidized and what are the final products? a. In the first oxidation step, the electron receptor is FAD. FADH is then oxidized to FAD and H2O2 is produced. The H2O2 is ver reactive an is converted to H2O by a catalase. Lect 20 slide 3 5) When are ketone bodies produced? In which organ/tissue are they produced? a.
