The proposed equation was validated by comparing ATP amount obtained by its application, with ATP rates obtained by the addition of ATP amount produced by oxidative phosphorylation and substrate level phosphorylation in each step of the metabolic pathways that participate in the fatty acid degradation involving the glyoxylate cycle.
The Krebs cycle is the metabolic pathway that takes carbohydrates, proteins, and fats and converts them into carbon dioxide and water to generate a usable form of energy for the body.
Most are due to a defect in an enzyme or transport protein, which results in a block in a metabolic pathway. Effects are due to toxic accumulations of substrates before the block, intermediates from alternative metabolic pathways, defects in energy production and use caused by a deficiency of products beyond the block, or a combination of these metabolic deviations.
