Functional category : Straight chain fatty acids oxidation

Name : Straight chain fatty acids oxidation
Description : Enzymes involved in the oxidation of straight chain fatty acids. Here are included:

a) the ABC transporter that allows the fatty acid transport across the peroxisomal membrane,

b) enzymes carrying out the beta-oxidation pathway ACOX1, D-PBE, ACAA1 and SCPX,

c) CROT, which transfers the carnitine to an acyl not completely oxidized,

d) the thioesterases PTE1, PTE2, PTE2a and PTE2b, that regulates the acyl-CoA esterification and control the fatty acid shorting during the beta-oxidation.
