Unformatted text preview: degraded. The products of beta-oxidation are: • acetyl CoA • FADH 2 , NADH and H + The overall reaction, using palmitoyl CoA (16:0) as a model substrate: 7 FAD + 7 NAD + + 7 CoASH + 7 H 2 O + H(CH 2 CH 2 ) 7 CH 2 CO-SCoA --> 8 CH 3 CO-SCoA + 7 FADH 2 + 7 NADH + 7 H + Fate of acetyl CoA • Oxidation by the citric acid cycle to CO 2 and H 2 O. • In liver only, acetyl CoA may be used for ketone body synthesis. Fate of the FADH 2 and NADH + H + • FADH 2 and NADH + H + are oxidized by the mitochondrial electron transport system, yielding ATP....
