This webinar on fat oxidation and synthesis covers one of the main pathways of metabolism. You will learn about the cycles for fat metabolism and synthesis, and the similarities and differences between these pathways. You will also solve problems and perform calculations related to fatty acid oxidation and synthesis.
Fat Oxidation and Synthesis
At a glance
Predict how many cycles of oxidation or synthesis a fatty acid requires
Calculate the amounts of acetyl-CoA, NADH, and FADH2 that are produced
The similarities and differences between fat metabolism and synthesis
The cycles for fat metabolism and synthesis
How fat metabolism overlaps with carbohydrate metabolism at both the molecular and the human body levels
On the MCAT
Metabolic pathways are high-yield topics on the MCAT
Fat oxidation is more often asked about than synthesis, though both are fair game
This stuff is hard - don't give up!
I think these webinars are really helpful! I like how they’re styled like a TED talk, so they don’t interfere with the day, but they’re really helpful review 🙂
I found everything helpful about these webinars: the explanations, the illustrations, just everything!
Amazing material conveyed concisely and in great detail!
The wealth of information and sample questions are great.
