Beta oxidation of fatty acids

Fatty acid β-oxidation is the process by which fatty acids are broken down to produce energy. Fatty acids primarily enter a cell via fatty acid protein transporters on the cell surface. Once inside, FACS adds a CoA group to the fatty acid. CPT1 then converts the long-chain acyl-CoA to long-chain acylcarnitine.
