Fatty Acid Synthesis Requirements

BIOCHM-@1NBTV

Across species, under what conditions does fatty acid synthesis (FAS) take place?

A cell compartment is any region of a cell that is distinct from another region due to being bounded by a membrane. Examples include mitochondria, vesicles, the nucleus, and even the cytosol itself.

A

Fatty acid synthesis always occurs in the mitochondria.

B

Fatty acid synthesis occurs in cell compartments with high $[ATP]/[AMP]$ ratios.

C

Fatty acid synthesis occurs in cell compartments with high concentrations of $NAD^{+}$.

D

Fatty acid synthesis occurs in cell compartments with high concentrations of $NADPH$.

E

Fatty acid synthesis occurs only in adipocytes.
