Chapter 6 Metabolism: Fueling Cell Growth A Anabolism includes the processes that utilize energy to synthesize and assemble the building Aerobic respiration uses O2 as a terminal electron acceptor. Allosteric regulation uses an effector that binds to the allosteric site of the enzyme that in turn alters the relative affinity of the enzyme for its substrate Anaerobic respiration uses an inorganic molecule other than O2 as a terminal electron acceptor. C Catabolism encompasses those processes that transform and release energy blocks of a cell. Chemoorganotrophs transform energy by organic compounds. Competitive inhibition occurs when the inhibitor competes with the normal substrate for the active binding site Cofactors and coenzymes act in conjunction with enzymes. Chemolithotrophs are autotrophs; they do not require an external source of organic carbon because they can fix carbon dioxide E Exergonic reactions release energy. Endergonic
