Metabolism Without Tears • Control amount of detail: focus on ideas that make sense (e.g. food & nutrition), leave enzyme mechanism to the specialists • Think of analogy to everyday situations (e.g. metabolic reactions as highways) • Use ball-park figures (e.g. ATP hydrolysis ~ 30 kJ/mol) • Understand why (biological function: e.g. to provide energy even without O 2 ) Professor W.W.Chan

Metabolism Without Tears • Connect to other pathways, control points • Learn overall scheme (e.g. 6 C goes to 2 × 3C) and input/output (e.g. ATP, NADH) • Note key intermediates (e.g. pyruvate ) • Study types of reactions, enzymes, cofactors Professor W.W.Chan
