Hormone sensitive lipase in fat cells, hydrolyzes TG to release fatty acids, controlled by glucagon, epinephrine & insulin Albumin carries fatty acids in blood stream Glycerol kinase produces glycerol-3-phosphate Glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase oxidizes G3PD to DHAP for glycolysis Fatty acyl-CoA synthetase (thiokinase) uses ATP & CoA to activate fatty acids carnitine small molecule used to transport fatty acids into mitochondrion Carnitine acyl transferase I &II adds fatty acyl to carnitine from fatty acyl CoA & removes Acyl-CoA dehydrogenase, hydratase, OH acyl-CoA dehydrogenase dehydrogenates (oxidizes) fatty acyl CoA, hydrates and oxidizes to ketone at beta position Acyl-CoA acetyltransferase removes acetyl-CoA by attack of CoA leaving shortened acyl CoA Propionyl-CoA carboxylase adds CO 2 to propionyl-CoA to form methylmalonyl CoA, uses ATP, biotin & B12 Enzymes, Proteins & Other Players in Triacylglyceride & Fatty Acid Degradation
