There are numerous intersection points for the catabolism of biomolecules. fatty acids, for example, are oxidized per 2-carbon fargments as it becomes converted to acetyl CoA. This enables its entry to the TCA cycle.
The metabolic pathways of proteins, carbohydrates, and fatty acids:
A. overlap in the TCA cycle through some catabolic intermediates
B. allow carbohydrates to be converted into amino acids
C. allow amino acids to be converted into lactic acid in anaerobic conditions
D. allow fatty acids to be converted to glucose-6-phosphate
E. Two of the above are correct
F. Three of the above are correct
G. All of the above are correct
