When fats are to be respired they get broken to simple oxidisable forms - fatty acids and glycerol where they enter the respiratory pathway through various __. Fatty acid gets converted to acetyl-CoA and glycerol to PGAL to enter Krebs cycle.

Lipids undergo hydrolysis and form fatty acids and glycerol. Glycerol and fatty acid enters into respiratory pathway after converting into intermediates, PGAL (Phosphoglyceraldehyde) and acetyl-CoA respectively.
