However, the catabolism of these biomolecules occurs mainly in the peroxisomes of foliar tissues and in glyoxysomes during the plants' seed germination (Buchanan, Gruissem, Vickers, & Jones, 2015).
Each break of carbon-carbon bond during [beta]-oxidation in glyoxysomes and peroxisomes produces one NADH which, in oxidative phosphorylation, produces 2.
So that Equation (8) may be validated, the ATP amount, obtained from its application, was compared with the ATP amount calculated individually from the sum of acetyl-CoA, NAHD and FADH2 molecules number, and substrate level phosphorylation, generated in the oxidation of fatty acids with specific numbers of carbon atoms in glyoxysomes (Table 2).

convert lipids to carbohydrates during the germination process.
