respiration problem

1. Why is the oxidation of fatty acid n mitochondria called beta oxidation?


2. What is the difference between NAD+ and FAD?

:P 1 is NAD+ produce 3(2.5) ATP while FAD produce 2(1.5) ATP
what else?

3. How does lactose, sucrose and mannose enter glycolysis?

metabolism of fatty acid which is haveng a saturated long chain is known as beta oxidation has no link weather it happens in mitochondria or not , there r two more types of fatty acid oxidations.
nad has affinity of binding to a single H ,fad has affinity to two protons . and the structure varies nad is used when H is taken out from a single C where as fad when H are taken out from two different.
lactose, sucrose and mannose r cleaved into there respective monomers by specific enzymes which find there path to glycolysis
hope u understood dude if not write to me on "[email protected]" im preaty good in biochemistry
the organisms that survive r not the one which r strongest nor the one which r briliant THEY R THE ONE WHICH RESPOND TO CHANGES IN NATURE FIRST
