February 11, 2007 The Phylogenetic Tree of Eukaryotes Fig 23.8 Archaeplastida= ancient Will not study rhizaria Protista= single cell, unicellular microorganism Chapter 8 Cellular energy Derived from Chemicals: metabolism What is metabolism? 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…

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
