Term Information

Accession
GO:0006633
Name
fatty acid biosynthetic process
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
fatty acid anabolism, fatty acid biosynthesis, fatty acid formation, fatty acid synthesis
Alternate IDs
GO:0000037
Definition
The chemical reactions and pathways resulting in the formation of a fatty acid, any of the aliphatic monocarboxylic acids that can be liberated by hydrolysis from naturally occurring fats and oils. Fatty acids are predominantly straight-chain acids of 4 to 24 carbon atoms, which may be saturated or unsaturated; branched fatty acids and hydroxy fatty acids also occur, and very long chain acids of over 30 carbons are found in waxes.
