All are seen in triacyl glycerol metabolism in adipocytes except. (AIPG 2007)
|A||Storage form of lipid in body|
|B||Glycerol kinase is the enzyme involved|
|C||Metabolized by lipoprotein lipase|
|D||Dihydroxy acetone phosphate is the chief source of TG synthesis.|
"In adipose tissue, glycerol kinase is deficient and the major source is DHAP derived from glycolysis".
a. Adipose tissue serves as a storage site for excess calories ingested.
b. White adipose tissue is mainly concerned with energy storage.
c. TG forms the major component (80%) of white adipose tissue with oleic acid being the most abundant fatty acid (50%).
d. Brown tissue is involved in thermogenenesis
