How does fat change to glucose?

Postby alfakaks » Fri Mar 19, 2010 2:47 pm

How does fat change to glucose (in plants)? Please give links, slideshows and e-books, where are reactions, schemes, mechanisms and other useful information.
Thank you!

That's not much correct answer, as he's asking about plants, he probably means the glyoxylate cycle.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glyoxylate_cycle
http://www.genome.jp/dbget-bin/www_bget?md:M00012
that's similar to the tricarboxylic acid cycle, but instead of decarboxylation steps, another acetyl-CoA is incorporated

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

just to add on
keep the following in mind
fats can join in at the link reaction...
this will not result in their conversion to glucose but can act as a glucose substitute to give energy
it isn't what you do that matters but it is how you do it

why do you always post useless posts?

What link reaction are you talking about?

Fats can be source of glucose. Even in human. Think about that ;)

Thanks Jack. My attention has been away from plants for too long, I sure wasn't thinking about the glyoxylate shunt.
