Functional category : Unsaturated fatty acid beta-oxidation

Name : Unsaturated fatty acid beta-oxidation
Description : The beta-oxidation of unsaturated fatty acids needs additional steps, in order to displace the double bonds to proper positions allowing beta-oxidation. Beta-oxidation of unsaturated fatty acid with double bounds extending from even-numbered carbons yields 2,4-dienoyl-CoAs. When the double bounds are extending from odd-numbered carbons, 2,5-dienoyl-CoAs is produced. Specific enzymes for displacing the unsaturations are PDCR, PECI and ECH1.
