All mammals can synthesize fatty acids de novo from acetyl coenzyme A. The endproduct of the fatty acid synthetase (EC 2.3. I .85) enzyme is palmitic acid (16:0), which in turn can be elongated to stearic acid (18:O). There is little need for the synthesis of saturated fatty acids in Western man, since the diet normally supplies adequate amounts. However, cell membranes require unsaturated fatty acids to maintain their structure, fluidity and function; therefore, a mechanism for the… CONTINUE READING
