Additional Enzymes: Propionyl CoA Handling the three-carbon propionyl CoA Fatty acids with an odd number of carbons in their chains require a means of handling the three-carbon propionyl CoA that is the final fragment produced by beta-oxidation of such a chain: The first step is carboxylation by the biotin-dependent propionyl CoA carboxylase in an

Unformatted text preview: ATP-requiring reaction. The D- isomer, which is the product, is then converted to the L- isomer by methylmalonyl CoA racemase. In the final step, the L- isomer is converted to succinyl CoA by methylmalonyl CoA mutase. Succinyl CoA can then be metabolized through the tricarboxylic acid cycle....
