Glycerol-3-phosphate is required for synthesis of triacylglycerols and phospholipids as it is the backbone to which fatty acids are esterified.
Where does the majority of glycerol come from?
Dihydroxyacetone-phosphate (DHAP) from the glycolytic pathway.
Glycerol is synthesized de novo in the liver.
Glycerol is absorbed from the diet.
Glycerol is recycled from TAGs and phospholipids that are catabolized.
None of the above.
