The biochemical reactions in a cell. Metabolism involves energy shifting Oxidation Losing e- or H (=e- + H+) e donor (higher energy) oxidation (electron is lost) Oxidized Reduction Accepting e- or H Reduced (higher energy) reduction e acceptor Energy is stored in chemical bonds Larger molecules are higher in energy; they have higher chemical bonds(reduced) Smaller molecules are lower in energy (oxidized) Decreasing arrow (arrow doing down): Catabolism (larger molecules breaking down to smaller molecules, Oxidation, Exergonic (generating energy, energy is coming out of the reaction. Ex: digestion) Increasing arrows: Biosynthesis (Anabolism, smaller molecules forming larger molecules), Reduction, Endogonic. Ex: eating beef…
