fatty acid omega-oxidation Gene Set

Dataset GO Biological Process Annotations
Category structural or functional annotations
Type biological process
Description A fatty acid oxidation process in which the methyl group at the end of the fatty acid molecule (the omega carbon) is first oxidized to a hydroxyl group, then to an oxo group, and finally to a carboxyl group. The long chain dicarboxylates derived from omega-oxidation then enter the beta-oxidation pathway for further degradation. (Gene Ontology, GO_0010430)
