SPECIFIC CATABOLIC PATHWAYS
Blue box = carbon
Red box = acetyl CoA
Each cycle produces 1 acetyl-CoA
18 carbon fatty acid would give 9 acetyl-CoA
Cycles required is # of carbons/2 – 1
18 carbon fatty acid would require 8 cycles
Amount of energy from Fatty Acid depends on length of carbon chain
18 carbon fatty acid would give 146 ATP
