Solution

Following are the uses of fatty acids:

  1. Progesterone, estrogen, testosterone and aldosterone are hormones produced from fatty acids.
  2. Phospholipids are molecules formed from fatty acids. They form the basic structure of the cell membrane and are essential for the functional ability of a cell.
  3. Fatty acids are present in the covering around the axon of nerve cells.
Concept: Formation of ATP
