Functional category : Lipid metabolism

Name : Lipid metabolism
Description : Peroxisome metabolism is focused on lipid metabolism, in mammals primarily on oxidation of very long fatty acids (FA), methyl-branched FA, intermediates of the primary bile acids and dicarboxylic acids, as well as on synthesis of plasmalogens and synthesis of polyunsaturated FA (PUFAs). Its contribution in the isoprenoid/cholesterol pathway is controversial. Malonyl-CoA decarboxylase (MLYCD) has been suggested to be involved in fatty acid synthesis and oxidation.
