Connection between metabolism of fats and carbonhydrates?


Recommended Posts

Fatty acids are broken down into acetyl CoAs in the mitochondria via beta oxidation and fed into the Kreb's cycle.


Citrate synthase metabolises OAA and Acetyl-CoA into Citrate.

In reverse, citrate can exit the Kreb's cycle via fatty acid synthesis.
