MetaCyc Gene-Ontology-Terms Class: GO:0006635 - fatty acid beta-oxidation

Definition: A fatty acid oxidation process that results in the complete oxidation of a long-chain fatty acid. Fatty acid beta-oxidation begins with the addition of coenzyme A to a fatty acid, and occurs by successive cycles of reactions during each of which the fatty acid is shortened by a two-carbon fragment removed as acetyl coenzyme A; the cycle continues until only two or three carbons remain (as acetyl-CoA or propionyl-CoA respectively).

Parent Classes:
GO:0019395 - fatty acid oxidation ,

Child Classes:
GO:0033539 - fatty acid beta-oxidation using acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (1) ,
GO:0033542 - fatty acid beta-oxidation, unsaturated, even number (2)
