Complete the following statements related to the $\beta$-oxidation of very long chain (greater than 22 carbons) fatty acids.

Short, medium and long chain fatty acids are metabolized by $\beta$-oxidation in the
Select Option cytosolmitochondrionperoxisomenucleus
, whereas very long chain (greater than 22 Cs) are metabolized in the
Select Option cytosolmitochondrionperoxisomenucleus
. During $\beta$-oxidation of short, medium and long chain fatty acids, electrons are transferred from the fatty acid to
Select Option ${ O }_{ 2 }$${ NAD }^{ + }$${ FADH }_{ 2 }$${ H }_{ 2 }{ O }_{ 2 }$
, which are then coupled to ATP synthesis. In contrast, $\beta$-oxidation of very long chain fatty acids results in electron transfer from ${ FADH }_{ 2 }$ directly to
Select Option ${ O }_{ 2 }$${ NAD }^{ + }$${ H }_{ 2 }{ O }$${ H }_{ 2 }{ O }_{ 2 }$
producing
Select Option ATPNADH${ H }_{ 2 }{ O }$${ H }_{ 2 }{ O }_{ 2 }$
, which is broken down by the enzyme
Select Option adenylate kinasecytochrome oxidasecatalaselipase
.
