The synthesis and breakdown of fatty acids are a central part of human energy metabolism, and the eicosanoid class of fatty acid derivatives regulate diverse processes in the body (Vance & Vance 2008 - URL). Processes annotated in this module include the synthesis of fatty acids from acetyl-CoA, mitochondrial and peroxisomal breakdown of fatty acids, and the metabolism of eicosanoids and related molecules.
