WVSOM - FA Oxidation

WVSOM -- Beta Oxidation and other FA oxidations

Oleate 18C DB 9
Linoleate 18C DB 9,12
Linolenate 18C DB 9,12,15
Arachinoale 20C DB 5,8,11,14
Which cells never use B Oxidation RBCs and Brain Cells
Where does B oxidation occur Mitochondria
B oxidation utilizes which kind of metabolism aerobic
Uncommon Fatty Acids Long chains with odd numbers of carbons
Common Fatty Acids Long Chain (even numbers) and mono- or polyunsaturated FA
Medium Fatty Acid chains 6-12 C
Short Fatty Acid Chains 4 carbons
Very Long Acid Chains more than 20 carbons
Triacylglycerol Lipolysis Tracylglycerol -> Diacylglycerol -> Monoacylglycerol -> Glycerol
Long chain fatty acid cross the plasma membrane via facilitated transport and diffusion
Fatty acids transported on what protein in plasma albumin
How is ATP expended in the cytosol during B Oxidation Fatty acids bound to acyl CoA molecules
Carnitine transports Fatty Acyl into mitochondria
What binds to FA as soon as it enters the mitochondria binds to another CoA
When does B Oxidation occur in a fast
What mitochondria do not perform B oxidation mitochondria in brain cells
major regulation of B oxidation Adipose (hormone sensitive) Lipase
B oxidation Starting materials Long Chain FA NAD+ FAD
B oxidation products Acetyl CoA NADH FADH2
How far are fatty acids cleaved during B oxidation until there are only Acetyl CoA Molecules
How many FADH2 and NADH produced in B oxidation 1 per each B oxidation
Propionyl- CoA 3 carbons
When is propionyl CoA Produced when Fatty acid chains have odd numbers
Where does Propionyl CoA enter the Kreb Cycle production of Succinyl CoA
FADH2 production from B oxidation of unsaturated fatty acids 1 less FADH2 per double bond
When are medium chain fatty acids B-oxidized as soon as they are absorbed from the gut
w-oxidation produces dicarboxylic acids
Where does w-oxidation occur opposite end of fatty acid chain that B oxidation occurs
Peroxisomal Oxidation oxidizes long, branched chains into fatty acyl-CoA that is then B oxidized
Peroxisomal and W-fatty acid oxidation regulation only by the supply of fatty acids they oxidize

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
