Unformatted text preview: Metabolism I. Sum of a cell's chemical reactions How does cell oxidize glucose protieins-> top make ATP to power the cell How are the intermediates used to make new biomolecules (Ex. AA for proteins) Dont purely memorize A. Look at the overarching themes B. Energy requiring reactions 1) How does the cell harness energy from ATP to power endergonic reactions i. All these pathways, if unregulated, there would be choas and death 1) Understood, you know why each pathway functions the way it does a) Regulatory mechs control how each pathway is turned on/off 2) How are metabolic pathways regulated? ii. Understand the underlying themes and concepts that drive all this C. Approach II. Wednesday of 1st week i. Begins at 2nd scheduled section A. Mandatory B. Sections.ucsd.edu C. Enrollment open at 11 PM tonight D. Turn in HW and get Exams back in section E. Discussion Sections III. Download HW from TED A. Supplimental materials B. Open forum i. Use discussion board for questions C. TED (WebCT) IV. 16% of the grade i. 4 HW assignements -> each worth 40 points (160 pts total) A. Best way to prep for exams and studying B. Guide on how to approach class (thinking based) C. Due in the 2nd section of following week (Wed/Thurs) i. Keys will be posted after they're due ii. 1st week Thurs/Friday -> will be posted D. HW can only be turned in to the TA who you're registered with 1) 5 points for each working day it's late i. Late policy E. HW Assignments V. HW - 160 A. MT - 400 B. Final - 440 C. Total - 1000 points D. Wed Aug 17th 2-4 PM i. MT E. Grading VI. Lecture 1: Protein Structure Monday, August 01, 2011 9:34 AM BIBC 102 Page 1 Longer exam ii. NO Citric Acid Cycle iii. Friday Sept 2nd at 8 AM i. Final F. 1/2 is straightforward (Read: memorize) A. Other half is more critical thinking based B. Comprehensive i. Ex. MT - know ALL structures of glycolysis 1) Final - know names of intermediates 2) Less detailed required than MT ii. Final C. Exams VII. What they are i. How they work ii. How catalysis works iii. How theyre regulated iv. Start - enzymes A. How cell uses energy to make new biomolecules in the cell i. Midwk - metabolism B. Essentially Half of metabolism i. Light reactions and carbon fixing reactions ii. End - photosynthesis C. Lecture Schedule VIII. Dont approach via memorization -> think. A. Learning is an active process B. Don't write down everything (I will) C. scanning for relevant concepts 1) General concepts 2) Read Text before lecture i. Show what important info is 1) How does it fit into the class materials a) Put material in context and help integrate info 2) Attend lecture ii. Understand it 1) Use lecture notes to guide your reading 2) You dont need to know all of them i) Leninger goes through all the reaction mechanisms a) Ex. Glycolysis 3) Re-read relevant sections in the text in depth iii....
