|Name :||Branched chain fatty acid beta-oxidation|
|Description :||Branched chain fatty acids have a carbon scaffold with methyl branches. The enzymes that allow the properly beta-oxidation are:
a) ACOX2 (it belongs to the acyl-CoA oxidases family and carries on the first dehydrogenation),
ACOX3 (it belongs to the acyl-CoA oxidases family and is involved in branched chain FA oxidation only in rodentia. It carries on the first dehydrogenation),
c) HSD17B4 (D-PBE) (hydration and dehydrogenation again, rely on the bifunctional protein),
d) SCPX (Sterol carrier protein X carries on the thyolitic cleavage).
