INTRODUCTION My name is Bob Buchanan, and I’ll be teaching the metabolism portion of this course. I’ll be doing lectures based on PowerPoint slides instead of using the overhead projector.

Please do not send me emails. Come to my office hours if you have any questions. So today, we’ll start with principles of bioenergetics. Most of it should be review. Then we’ll go into breakdown pathways, such as glycolysis. We’ll then go into metabolic regulation, like glucose. The assigned readings are a bit long, so make sure you keep up with the reading. If you’re behind, even spring break will be hard to catch up. After this, we’ll move to the Citric Acid cycle, and then we’ll go into fatty acid catabolism, amino acid oxidation and the production of urea, and oxidative phosphorylation, the pay-off in terms of energy. LECTURE If we look at the overall view of life from a bioenergetic standpoint, we see cycling of carbon dioxide and oxygen between photosynthetic autotrophs and heterotrophs. We see that the sun is used by plants, or photosynthetic autotrophs. Autotrophs literally mean “self-feeding,” whereas heterotrophs mean “growing on others.” So the photosynthetic autotrophs absorb light and break down products to produce oxygen and organic
