Eicosanoids E icosanoids are signaling molecules made by oxidation of twenty-carbon essential fatty acids, (EFAs). Act as messengers in inflammation or immunity, The networks of controls that depend upon eicosanoids are among the most complex in the human body.

Catabolism and Anabolism of Fatty Acids Proceed via Different Pathways Catabolism of fatty acids produced acetyl-CoA reducing power to NADH location: mitochondria Anabolism of fatty acids requires malonyl-CoA and acetyl-CoA reducing power from NADPH location: cytosol in animals, chloroplast in plants

Overview of Fatty Acid Synthesis Fatty acids are built in several passes processing one acetate unit at a time The acetate is coming from activated malonate in the form of malonyl-CoA In each pass involves reduction of a carbonyl carbon to a methylene carbon
