Bis2A: Metabolism Discussion Exercise, Week 2 Assignment : Break into groups of 3-4 students. Each group will work to fill in a diagram showing the energy flow and carbon flow for one major type of catabolic pathway. What goes in the boxes? Molecules such as: the glucose, carbon dioxide, lactate, ATP, Biosynthesis products What labels belong on the arrows? The processes: substrate-linked phosphorylation, carbon flow to biosynthesis, electron flow via NADH, electron flow via NADH to an ETC, chemiosmosis (a Proton-motive force used to make ATP; part of oxidative phosphorylation), Work Your group may not use all of the molecules or processes listed above. Mark the boxes and arrows primarily involved in carbon flow with one color of pen (or pencil) and the boxes and arrows primarily involved in energy flow with another color. I’ve left a blank set of pathways for you to try filling in on your own since we may not have gotten a chance to go over everything in discussion. Don’t worry if you didn’t fill in all the blanks and arrows during discussion section. It was meant to promote group work and. .., well, discussion. What’s important is that you get a good grasp of key concepts of glucose metabolism. How do these fit with redox and the laws of thermodynamics as presented in class?
