IX. Mitochondrial beta-oxidation

Overview     Four enzymes and reactions Four enzymes and reactions: Dehydrogenation Four enzymes and reactions: Hydration Four enzymes and reactions: 2nd dehydrogenation Four enzymes and reactions: Thiolytic cleavage     Complete beta-oxidation of palmitoyl CoA     Additional Enzymes Additional Enzymes: Enoyl CoA Additional Enzymes: trans- vs cis Additional Enzymes: Propionyl CoA     Summary     Previous Page Next Page

Additional Enzymes: Enoyl CoA

The action of enoyl CoA isomerase is required to handle double bonds at odd-numbered carbons because beta-oxidation generates or requires pre-existing double bonds at even-numbered carbons.
