Additional Enzymes Additional enzymes are needed for complete oxidation of unsaturated and odd-carbon fatty acids. The action of enoyl CoA isomerase may be required. A system is needed to generate the trans- double bond required in beta-oxidation in place of the cis- bond which occurs naturally in fatty acids. The three-carbon propionyl CoA residue from beta- oxidation of odd-chain fatty acids is metabolized with special enzymes. Additional Enzymes: Enoyl CoA The action of enoyl CoA isomerase is required to handle double bonds
