Question: Compare and contrast the pathways of fatty acid breakdown and biosynthesis
Compare and contrast the pathways of fatty-acid breakdown and biosynthesis. What features do these two pathways have in common? How do they differ?
Answer to relevant QuestionsOutline the steps involved in the production of malonyl-CoA from acetyl-CoA. Draw a six-carbon saturated fatty acid and show where the double bond is created during the first step of b-oxidation. What is the orientation of this bond? Would you expect H2O or CO2 to be the source of the oxygen produced in photosynthesis? Give the reason for your answer. How does photosynthesis in C4 plants differ from the process in C3 plants? Write an equation for the net reaction of the urea cycle. Show how the urea cycle is linked to the citric acid cycle.
