MCQ on Fatty Acid Synthesis




Fatty acid synthesis is a cellular process occurring in the cytoplasm where acetyl-CoA molecules are enzymatically linked to form fatty acids. This anabolic pathway is crucial for building lipid molecules, such as triglycerides, used for energy storage and membrane structure in cells. This MCQs Fatty Acid Synthesis with Answers will help you to understand the biochemical pathway of fatty acid synthesis.
