You are responsible for all of the material covered in lecture, however the exam understanding- based, not memorization-based. Use these guidelines, the homework problems, and the practice exam to help you focus your studying. A. You will be given the following equations: G = G°’ + RT ln ([products]/[reactants]) G°’ = -RT ln K eq You will also be given any constants, and the temp. in degrees Kelvin. You will need to understand how to use the equations. You should know any other equations covered in lecture, including the Michaelis-Menten equation. You do not need to know the Lineweaver-Burke equation. B. You should have a detailed understanding of the two enzyme catalytic mechanisms

You do not need to memorize the R-groups of all the amino acids, however you should know the R-group of serine. b. You should be able to recognize, but not draw from scratch, the structures of large molecules such as coenzymes and ATP. c. You need to be able to draw from scratch the structures for all of intermediates for glycolysis, and lactate and ethanol fermentation. This does not include coenzymes and ATP. You will also need to know the enzymes for each of these reactions (but not the structures of enzymes). You do not need to know any other structures that may have been used as examples in lecture....
