Term Information [More information on fatty acid alpha-oxidation]

Accession
GO:0001561
Name
fatty acid alpha-oxidation
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
None
Definition
A metabolic pathway by which 3-methyl branched fatty acids are degraded. These compounds are not degraded by the normal peroxisomal beta-oxidation pathway, because the 3-methyl blocks the dehydrogenation of the hydroxyl group by hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase. The 3-methyl branched fatty acid is converted in several steps to pristenic acid, which can then feed into the beta-oxidative pathway.
