METABOLISM AND METABOLIC PATHWAYS CONTROL OF ENERGY, CARBON, NITROGEN etc. EVEN EXERGONIC REACTIONS HAVE AN ACTIVATION ENERGY - > A CRITICAL FACTOR IN METABOLISM IS ENZYME CATALYSIS WE WILL STUDY ENZYME MECHANISMS IN SOME DETAIL THE COUPLING OR LINKAGE OF ENZYME REACTIONS IS IMPORTANT FOR ENERGY MANAGEMENT AND CHEMICAL PROCESSING THE ROUTES AN ORGANISM CHOOSES FOR DEGRADATION OR SYNTHESIS OF METABOLITES ARE CONSTRAINED BY THE NATURE OF THE DESIRED END PRODICT AS WELL AS BY THE FACT THAT ENZYMES CHOOSE THE LOW ENERGY PATHWAYS THAT ARE AVAILABLE TO THEM STRESS WILL BE ON THE LOGIC OF THE METABOLIC TRANSFORMATIONS AND THE CHEMICAL DETAILS OF CATALYSIS AN UNFAVORABLE REACTION CAN BE DRIVEN BY AN ENERGETICALLY FAVORABLE ONE 1-2
