Calculate the net ATP yield from linoleic acid (18:2 D9,12). For this calculation, assume that the loss of an NADPH is the same as the loss of an NADH.
Answer to relevant QuestionsIt has been stated many times that fatty acids cannot yield a net gain in carbohydrates. Why can odd-chain fatty acids be thought to break this rule to a small extent? How are the two redox reactions of b-oxidation different from their counterparts in fatty-acid synthesis? Uncouplers of oxidative phosphorylation in mitochondria also uncouple photoelectron transport and ATP synthesis in chloroplasts. Give an explanation for this observation. Using information from Sections 15-3 and 15-6, show how the ∆G°' of 478 kJ (114 kcal) is obtained for each mole of CO2 fixed in photosynthesis. The reaction in question is 6CO2 + 6H2O ( Glucose + 6O2. Draw a transamination reaction between a-ketoglutarate and alanine.
