BMB 402H/Study GuideSpring 2009Chapter 27 Integration of Metabolism1.P.27-2 of the Handout: Focus on the key intermediates in energy metabolism (i.e., glucose-6-phosphate, pyruvate, acetyl-CoA) and the enzymes that are regulated by hormones (there is no need to remember the details of each pathway)2.Three kinds of principal fuel reserves and their storage sites (p. 27-3); pay attention to the major storage site for each fuel reserve, but there is no need to memorize the actual amounts3.Metabolic roles of liver, skeletal muscle, heart muscle, adipose tissue, and brain (p. 27-3 to p.27-6)4. Major metabolic events in brain, liver, skeletal muscle, heart muscle, and adipose tissue infed, between meal, and starvation states (p. 27-9)5. Two major differences between the metabolism of heart and skeletal muscles6. How the metabolism of triacylglycerol in adipose tissue is tied to the level of glucose in theblood7.Use the figure on p. 27-7 and the figure on p. 27-8 to reinforce the information contained
