Oxidation of Unsaturated Fatty Acids
Our cells contain enzymes that enable it to break down unsaturated fatty acids. Fatty acids that contain an odd number of double bonds require an isomerase to convert it into a form that can then enter the beta oxidation pathway. On the other hand, fatty acids that contain an even number of double bonds require an isomerase and a reductase to transform it into a form that can then be broken down via the regular beta oxidation pathway.
