1 Lipids GRT TASK 1 208.5.6 Rosina Lloyd Western Governor's University 2 A. Explain how energy is stored as fat, including identification of storage molecules and tissue. The molecule fat is store in the body in many forms. It can be stored in the body as a carbohydrate, which is used when the supply of fats is limited. Fat is also store in the system as triglycerides that forms three of our good saturated fatty acids. This process is formed on the cellular level of respiration. Adenosine triphosphate is our main source of receiving energy to the body. 1. Describe how the storage of molecules is broken down and used to produce ATP. The process of ATP formation occurs when you inhale or exhale. In this cycle beta oxidation occurs causing fatty acids to be broken down into two carbons which forms…show more content…
Once this molecules binds in the Krebs cycle it forms tricarboxylic acid and citric acid. When the coenzymes bind it enter into the electron system. While there ATP is then released as energy throughout the body. B. Compare three features of saturated and unsaturated fatty acids. Saturated fatty acids are mostly found in animal products such as fatty beef, cream, cheese, pork , chicken and whole milk. It has no double bonds at his level. At room temperature it is a solid. These product raise the level of bad cholesterol or LDL (low density lipoproteins. Unsaturated fatty acids however, are mainly found in fish and plant foods like canola oil, olive oil, peanut oil, tuna, salmon, mackerel and trout. These molecules are liquid at room level. The bonds are double in this form. These
