Unformatted text preview: Chapter 6: Metabolism: Fueling Cell Growth Chapter 6 Notes Dont worry too much about the details of Glycolysis, Cellular Respiration, or Photosynthesis onward. These topics are covered on pp. 144-151 and pp. 156-163. Note, however, that we will cover Glycolysis and Cellular Respiration in class at least from the perspectives of the importance of NAD + regeneration. Important Point: Products of Microbial Metabolism Important Consequences of Microbial Metabolism Beer, wine, and other alcoholic beverages. Bread (all of above are mostly products of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae ). Products of lactic-acid bacteria (LAB) including sour milks, various cheeses, half-sour pickles, sauerkraut, etc. (e.g., of Lactococcus spp. & Lactobacillus spp.). Organic solvents including acetone (product of Clostridium acetobutylicum ) , butanol (ditto), and, of course, ethanol (product of S. cerevisiae ). Acetic acid (vinegar). Biochemical identification of bacterial species. Unique (e.g., not found in animals) targets for antimicrobial action. Disease (e.g., dental caries). Metabolism = Catabolism + Anabolism sum = metabolism Pay particular attention to those words in bold in this figure. Bioenergetics (see Fig. 6.3)Bioenergetics (see Fig....
