Unformatted text preview: Wednesday’s Class: NUTRIENTS & ENERGY METABOLISM Chapter 2 Pages: 39-‐44, 71-‐74 Chapter 2 Pages: 22-‐27, 57-‐60 What you should be able to do by the end of today’s lecture • Explain the diﬀerent categories of energy. Understand the diﬀerences between kineXc and potenXal energy and give examples of each. • Understand how energy is stored in the body and how ATP is produced in the mitochondria when oxygen is available. • Explain the four main pathways that supply ATP and the duraXon and eﬃciency of a parXcular pathway. • Discuss why heat is produced when energy is used. Energy • Energy – ability to do work • Energe'cs – energy transfer between systems • Types of energy – Poten'al – trapped energy – Kine'c – energy of movement Categories of Energy • Heat – Radiant energy – transmi^ed from one object to another – Thermal energy – movement of molecules • Also called molecular kineXc energy • Mechanical energy – movement of objects • Electrical energy – movement of charged parXcles down a charge gradient • Chemical energy – within chemical bonds Animals rely on all ﬁve types of energy, which are interconverXble. Chemical Bonds • Most biologically available energy is stored in chemical bonds Two main types of bonds • Covalent bonds (strong bonds) – individual atoms held together by the sharing of electrons • Noncovalent bonds (weak bonds) – molecules organized into three-‐
dimensional structures van der Waals in nature: How geckos sXck. Energy Storage Cells store energy in two main forms • Reducing energy • High energy bonds Energy can be “stored” in covalent bonds • Energy is released when bonds are broken • ATP is the most common “high energy” molecule In most animals and plants, Energy is not stored as ATP • Lipids • Carbohydrates – Starch (plants) – Fructans (plants) – Glycogen (animals) – Trehalose (insects) – Sucrose (plants) • Proteins & Amino Acids Chemical Poten.al Energy! Food goes in… ReacXons with enzymes that require oxygen, e.g., ATP producXon •
• Cytoplasmic enzymes convert nutrients into metabolites Metabolites are carried to mitochondria Metabolites are further broken down to release energy Many metabolites are converted to acetyl CoA • Energy in acetyl CoA transferred to NADH and FADH2 Figure 2.38 …Reducing equivalents come out Xon Oxi d a Rege
