The carbon skeletons from amino acid may enter the Krebs cycle via acetate as acetyl-CoA or via oxaloacetate/␣-ketoglutarate. These latter two precursors are direct metabolites of the amino acids aspartate and glutamate. An alternative to the complete oxidation of the carbon skeletons to CO2 is the use of these carbon skeletons for the formation of fat and carbohydrate. Fat is formed from elongation of acetyl units, and so amino acids whose carbon skeletons degrade to acetyl-CoA and ketones may alternatively be used for synthesis of fatty acids.

This pathway has been shown to be the prominent pathway in rat liver and in other vertebrate species (16). Although this reaction degrades glycine, its importance is the production of a methylene group that can be used in other metabolic reactions. contrast, the former group is rarely rate limited in synthesis because of the ample precursor availability of carbon skeletons from the TCA cycle and from the labile amino-N pool of transaminating amino acids. 4. As with amino acid degradation, glutamate is central to the synthesis of several amino acids by providing the N for synthesis.
