What is Zwitter Ion and Isoelectric point

Amino acids have at lease two ionizable groups, i.e., -COOH and -NH2+, of which the former dissociates more easily than the latter. at physiological pH (7.3), the carboxyl group exists in ionized form whereas the amino group remains un-dissociated and thus retains a positive charge. This doubly charged molecule of ...

Biosynthesis of Saturated Fatty acids

Biosynthesis of Saturated Fatty acids Notes

Glucose entering the TCA cycle is used for the biosynthesis of saturated fatty acids by converting TCA-cycle citrate to acetyl coenzyme A (acetyl CoA), and then malonyl CoA, which is used to produce palmitate. The glycerol backbone of TGs comes from glycolytic glycerol-3-phosphate. Triglycerides are the primary lipid synthesized, and ...
