Review Sheet Chapters 23 and 24 Protein Degradation and Amino Acid Metabolism Describe the differences between digestion of dietary proteins and degradation of cellular proteins. Describe the basic principles of protein degradation via Ubiquitin. Which compounds donate the amino groups that are eliminated as urea in the urea cycle? How is the citric acid cycle linked to the urea cycle? Which enzymes in the urea cycle can be defective and cause hyperammonemia? How are they treated? The process of nitrogen fixation uses the nitrogenase complex which requires what molecules to function? How is cysteine synthesized? What are porphyrins synthesized from and how? What is the amino group transfer that is common to the metabolism of most amino acids? What is the cofactor? How does the cofactor function? Name at least 3 products of amino acid catabolism through which the carbon skeleton of amino acids can flow into glucose.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
