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

Accession
GO:0010430
Name
fatty acid omega-oxidation
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
None
Definition
A fatty acid oxidation process in which the methyl group at the end of the fatty acid molecule (the omega carbon) is first oxidized to a hydroxyl group, then to an oxo group, and finally to a carboxyl group. The long chain dicarboxylates derived from omega-oxidation then enter the beta-oxidation pathway for further degradation. Source: PMID:16404574, MetaCyc:PWY-2724
