Metabolism in Action colby.edu "Once tryptophan is consumed, it breaks down via different metabolic pathways to form a huge number of proteins and hormones, including serotonin, which elevates mood, and melatonin, which promotes sleep - a partial explanation for the nap that often follows Thanksgiving dinner. Tryptophan also helps make an essential vitamin, niacin."

Metabolism The totality of chemical reactions and energy output/input in an organism In metabolism, macromolecules get made (energy is consumed), and macromolecules get degraded (energy is released). Free energy change (ΔG)= thermodynamic formula stating whether energy is consumed or released Where a chemical reaction goes REACTANT PRODUCT, ΔG = G product – G reactant If ΔG > 0 , energy is consumed If ΔG < 0 , energy is released ( spontaneous )

Energy is released in this reaction ( spontaneous ) Reactants Products Energy Progress of the reaction Amount of energy released (∆ G <0) Free energy Energy Products Amount of energy released (∆ G >0) Progress of the reaction Reactants Energy is required (i.e.consumed) in this reaction ΔG = G product - G reactant
