Unformatted text preview: 2 (3 pts). Draw the structure of acyl-carnitine (make the fatty acid have 18 carbon atoms). 3 (10 pts). Starting with butyryl-CoA (an acyl-CoA with 4 carbons in the acyl chain), draw the reactions in fatty acid β-oxidation that lead to two molecules of acetyl-CoA. Show the names and structures of all the intermediates, and name the enzymes. You may use generic names for the intermediates (e.g. acyl-CoA)....
