Lecture Video: Special Cases in Fatty Acid Metabolism
Professor Essigmann explores several special cases in fatty acid metabolism in this video. This includes fatty acids that have a cis-double bond and fatty acids that have an odd number of carbons.
Problem Set & Solutions
Problem Solving Video: Problem Set 9, Problem 1: Catabolism of Triacylglycerols
In this problem, Dr. Fedeles calculates how much energy we get from metabolizing a molecule of fat. In this case, the fat is triacylglycerols which are synthesized from three fatty acids joined together by one glycerol molecule.
