FREE Expert Solution

The catabolism of lipids, especially those of triacylglycerols, proceeds from the oxidation of long-chain fatty acids, which provides about 80% of the energy needs under physiological conditions. The fatty acids in these triacylglycerols are oxidized through a repetitive four-step process known as β oxidation.
