Net yield of ATP per palmitate oxidized to 16 CO 2 ATP generated 8 acetyl CoA 80 7 QH 2 10.5 7 NADH 17.5 108 ATP ATP expended to activate palmitate -2 Net yield: 106 ATP Glc (6 C) = 32 ATP which is 5.33 ATP/C PA (16 C) = 106 ATP which is 6.88 ATP/C Why is the net production of ATP from palmitate 106 ATP and not 108 ATP? A. because conversion of palmitate to palmitoyl-CoA consumes the equivalent of 2 ATP B. because the overall reaction for conversion of palmitoyl-CoA to has 106 ATP on the products side of the reaction C. because each NADH produces about 2.5 ATP, and each FADH2 produces ...
