The product of fatty acid synthase action, palmitate, is but of course one of many fatty acids synthesized by cells. Elongases are enzymes that act to lengthen palmitate to produce many of the other fatty acids. Elongases are present in mitochondria and the endoplasmic reticulum. Elongation using elongase in the mitochondrion involves a mechanism that is essentially the reverse of Beta-oxidation except substitution of NADPH for FADH2 in the last reaction (see Figures from page 653).
