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.
The end product(s) of strict aerobic lipid catabolism is(are):
A. carbon dioxide
D. ethyl alcohol
E. Two of the above are correct
F. Three of the above are correct
G. All of the above are correct
