Unformatted text preview: Trypsin is found in the duodenum , and therefore, its optimum pH is in the neutral range to match the pH of the duodenum. Metabolic Pathways Metabolism refers to the chemical reactions that occur within cells. A hypothetical metabolic pathway is shown below. Reactions occur in a sequence and a specific enzyme catalyzes each step. Intermediates can be used as starting points for other pathways. For example, "C" in the diagram above can be used to produce "D" but can also be used to produce "F". Cyclic Pathways Some metabolic pathways are cyclic. The function of the cyclic pathway below is to produce E from A. Several intermediate steps are involved in the production of E. First, "A" combines with "F" to produce "B". "B" is then converted to "C", which is then converted to "D". "D" is then split to produce "E" (the desired product) and "F". "F" can be reused by combining with more "A"....
