|Name :||Branched chain fatty acid oxidation|
|Description :||Branched chain fatty acids have a carbon scaffold with methyl branches. In mammals, the enzymes that allow the oxidation are:
a) enzymes that allow the alpha-oxidation, displacing the 3-methyl from the fatty acid scaffold,
b) AMACR, which converts (2R)-methyl fatty acids to (2S)-methyl fatty acids,
c) and the beta-oxidation enzymes.
