Biology Lecture 24 Polysaccharides can by hydrolyzed into carbohydrates Proteins must be broken down to amino acids which in turn can feed the citric acid cycle Beta oxidation is when fatty acids are broken down to yield acetyl CoA An oxidized gram of fat has twice as much energy as an oxidized gram of ATP Most common way cellular respiration is regulated is by feedback inhibition Phosphofructokinase (allosteric enzyme) is helpful in ATP regulation Draw figure 9.6.3 and be able to label and understand it Autotrophs use sunlight as their source of energy. They can use this source of energy to make organic molecules. Heterotrophs have to eat organisms to get tier energy 6CO 2 + 12H 2 O + Light energy yields C 6 H 12 O 6 + 6O 2 + 6H 2 O Leaves are the major locations of photosynthesis. The green color from plants is because of the chlorophyll. Light energy is absorbed by the chlorophyll. CO2 enters and O2 exits the leaf through pores called stomata Chloroplasts are mainly found in the cells of the mesophyll (the interior tissue of the leaf)
