  1. 1. Peroxisomal and mitochondrial enzymes involved in lipid metabolism : studies on function and regulation

    Författare :Veronika Tillander; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Fatty acids constitute a major part of the energy that we obtain from the diet and are also the principal source for mammals to store energy. To use the incoming or stored fatty acids as energy, the fatty acids needs to be metabolized of which the majority of fatty acids will be degraded by the mitochondrial β-oxidation system that in the end generates energy to the cell in the form of ATP.

    Sammanfattning : Peroxisomes are essential organelles for normal cell functions in all organisms from yeast to human. Their important contribution in different metabolic pathways is clearly visible by the severe phenotypes seen in the majority of peroxisomal diseases, where the symptoms often leads to an early death.
