Vitamins and Fatty Acid Metabolism

Several of the B vitamins are essential for normal fatty-acid metabolism (Table 2). Pantothenic acid is a constituent of CoA and is thus required for numerous reactions of fatty acids. Niacin and ribo-flavin are necessary for the synthesis of oxidized and reduced NAD(P) and FAD, respectively. These compounds play essential roles in fatty-acid oxidation, synthesis, and elongation. Biotin is a constituent of acetyl-CoA carboxylase and pyruvate carboxylase, both of which are involved in the synthesis of fatty acids from glucose. Thiamine is required for activity of the pyruvate dehydrogenase complex, which also participates in fatty-acid synthesis from glucose.
