Regulation of Fatty Acid Synthesis in the Fed State
Concepts covered:Fatty Acid Synthesis, Fed State, Liver, Insulin Regulation, High ATP Levels
Fatty acid synthesis occurs in tissues like the liver when blood glucose levels are high, typically in the fed state. Insulin plays a key role in stimulating this process, which is also influenced by factors like high ATP levels.
Question 1
What triggers fatty acid synthesis besides high glucose?
Question 2
Which hormone stimulates fatty acid synthesis?
Question 3
When does fatty acid synthesis primarily occur?
Glucose Metabolism and Citrate Synthesis
Concepts covered:glucose metabolism, pyruvate conversion, acetyl coenzyme A, citrate synthesis, ATP inhibition
The chapter discusses the process of glucose metabolism, focusing on the conversion of glucose to pyruvate, which then enters the mitochondria to form acetyl coenzyme A. It further explains how citrate is synthesized from acetyl coenzyme A and oxaloacetate, highlighting the regulation of this process through ATP inhibition.
Question 4
Which process generates NADPH during malate conversion?
Question 5
What does citrate lyase convert citrate into?
Question 6
Which molecule combines with acetyl CoA in the Krebs cycle?
Acetyl CoA Carboxylase in Fatty Acid Synthesis
Concepts covered:Acetyl CoA carboxylase, Fatty acid synthesis, Carboxylation, Allosteric regulation, Hormonal regulation
Acetyl CoA carboxylase, a crucial enzyme in fatty acid synthesis, catalyzes the carboxylation of acetyl CoA to form malonyl-CoA by adding a carbon molecule. The enzyme is tightly regulated by allosteric regulators like citrate and long-chain fatty acids, as well as hormonally by insulin and cortisol.
Question 7
How does insulin affect acetyl CoA carboxylase?
Question 8
Which hormone opposes the action of insulin on acetyl CoA carboxylase?
Question 9
Which molecule stimulates acetyl CoA carboxylase?
Regulation of Fatty Acid Synthesis Pathway
Concepts covered:fatty acid synthesis, regulation, citrate, long-chain fatty acids, insulin
The chapter discusses the regulation of the fatty acid synthesis pathway, focusing on the role of citrate, long-chain fatty acids, insulin, glucagon, and NADPH in controlling the activity of key enzymes. It explains how citrate and insulin activate acetyl coenzyme A carboxylase, while long-chain fatty acids and glucagon inhibit its activity through phosphorylation and dephosphorylation processes.
Question 10
How does insulin affect acetyl CoA carboxylase?
Question 11
What activates acetyl CoA carboxylase?
Question 12
What does citrate stimulate in fatty acid synthesis?
