| | Re: How does fat change to glucose?
odd chain fatty acids are converted to acetyl CoA and last three carbons as propionyl CoA.propionyl CoA is converted to succinyl CoA ,an intermediate of TCA cycle. All the intermediates of TCA cycle are glucogenic.
Tg are converted to 3 molecules of fatty acids and glycerol. Glycerol goes to liver ,get converted to Gly-3-PO4,then to dihydroxy acetone phosphate-- ---Isomerase----------Glyceraldehyde-3-PO4
dihydroxy acetone phosphate + Glyceraldehyde-3-PO4=Fructose-1-6-bisphosphate---Fructose6-phosphate------G-6-P-----Glucose
