Key Event Description
Biological state being measured: fatty acid beta oxidation
Biological compartment: mitochondria or peroxisome
General role in biology: Fatty acid beta oxidation (FABO) is the process by which fatty acids are metabolized into glucose for energy utilization.
How It Is Measured or Detected
Fatty acid beta oxidation (FABO) can be measured by:
1) Activity of the enzymes that perform FABO
2) Flourescence assays measuring extracellular oxygen consumption
3) Radiolabel assays using labeled palmitate
Domain of Applicability
This is a well-known metabolic pathway.
