4 Acetyl-CoA is generated in the mitochondrial matrix (pyr deH in matrix), but no transporter for Acetyl-CoA in inner membrane. Use citrate as carrier molecule. Uses ATP to drive synthesis of thioester Provides cytoplasmic NADPH Figure 20-24 Acetyl-CoA in MT is transported into cytosol as citrate

5 Acetyl-CoA is “activated” by adding a CO 2 , generating Malonyl-CoA, the donor for fatty acid synthesis. Acetyl-CoA carboxylase (biotin) (ACC): Acetyl-CoA + HCO 3 - + ATP --> Malonyl-CoA + ADP + Pi Two step reaction, similar to pyruvate carboxylase and proprionyl-CoA carboxylase. Page 703

6 Mammalian Fatty Acid Synthase (FAS): 534 kDal protein with 6 enzymatic activities (bacteria have 7 independent proteins). Figure 20-27a 1. MAT – malonyl/acetyl CoA ACP transferase 2. KS – keto synthase 3 . ER – Enoyl reductase 4. KR – keto reductase 1. DH – hydroxylacyl dehydrogenase 2. TE – palmitol thioesterase 6 enzymatic activities 7 cycles of C 2 elongation Palmitate
