    Hi. Can anyone explain this to me plz...

    the decks says
    during fatty acid synthesis the following are expected to be active -> the kreb's cycle, glycolysis, amino acid catabolism, and the enzyme pyruvate dehydrohenase.

    but aren't those supposed to be active while the body needs energy, and the F.A synthesis should be active when the body has excess energy? I mean when carbo. , protein and things are left?

    I thought those shouldn't be active together..
    help needed! thanks a lot!!!:laugh:

    fatty acid synthesis occur from acetylcoa which is derived from all these amount of carbohydrates -more acetylcoa-fatty acid synthesis.correct me if I am wrong.
