Unformatted text preview: Cellular Metabolism s Energy as it relates to Biology Metabolism s s Catabolism (ATP production) s Glycolysis and the TCA Cycle Protein Synthesis s Anabolism (Synthetic pathways) s Metabolism Metabolism s Definition = “All chemical reactions that take Definition place within an organism.” place Metabolic pathways = network of linked reactions Basic feature: coupling of exergonic rxs with endergonic rxs. (direct vs. indirect coupling) (direct s s Review: Review: s Energy = capacity to do work s Usually from ATP s Enzymes = biological catalyst s Lower activation energy s Return to original state s Opportunity for control Metabolism Catabolism → Energy Anabolism → Synthesis Energy transferred commonly measured in calories: 1 cal = ↑ 1 g of H2O by 1° C 1 Kcal = ↑ temp. of 1L H2O by 1o C. = Calorie (capital C) Energy released in catabolic reactions is trapped in Energy 1) Phosphate bonds 1) 2) Electrons Metabolic pathways: Network of interconnected chemical reactions interconnected Linear pathway Intermediates Circular pathway Branched pathway Control of Metabolic Pathways Control (Chapter 6) 1. 1.

Catabolic Pathways: ATP-Regeneration ATP Amount of ATP produced reflects on usefulness of metabolic pathways: Aerobic pathways Anaerobic pathways Different biomolecules enter pathway at different points ATP = Energy Carrier of Cell (not very useful ATP for energy storage) ATP Cycle ATP : ADP ratio determines status of ATP synthesis reactions Glycolysis Glycolysis s From 1 glucose (6 carbons) to 2 From pyruvate (3 carbons) molecules pyruvate Main catabolic pathway of cytoplasm Does not require O2 ⇒ common for (an)aerobic catabolism (an)aerobic Starts with phosphorylation of Starts Glucose to Glucose 6-P Glucose s s s s (“Before doubling your money you first (“Before have to invest!”) have The Steps of The Glycolysis Glycolysis Net gain?
