In this case the enzymes are high enough to account for fatty acid synthesis rates [12]. Experiments to date indicate that the transport of acetate from mitochondria to cytoplasm occurs by prior conversion to citrate or iso citrate [13]. Because the citrate concentration in mitochondria is 15 times that of isocitrate, it appears that citrate is the major transport form. This mechanism is well co-ordinated with the many regulatory roles of citrate. When cell energy is high, the citric acid cycle is blocked at isocitrate dehydrogenase, causing an increase in concentrations of isocitrate and citrate, and passage of citrate to the cytoplasm.

Formed of amino acids bonded together in peptide linkage, proteins have a far greater potential for variability than do either carbohydrates or lipids.

These amino acids can occur in their free forms or can be bonded together in proteins. In naturally occurring food substances amino acids rarely are free but rather linked as protein. Dietary proteins, because they are large molecules, do not cross the intestinal wall to any significant extent in the adult animal and cannot be used by the body even when introduced 38 parenterally. Thus, to enter the circulation and to be utilized for protein synthesis, dietary protein must be hydrolyzed to its amino acids.
