Oxidation of fatty acids occur in
Ans. D Mitochondria
- β-oxidation of fatty acids takes place in the mitochondria, each step involves Acyl CoA derivatives catalyzed by separate enzyme utilizes NAD and FAD as co-enzymes and generate ATP.
- In contrast, fatty acids biosynthesis takes place in the cytosol involves Acyl derivatives continuously attached to a multienzymecomplex, utilizes NADPH+ as co-enzyme and required both ATP and HCO3-.
