Unformatted text preview: ionizable groups on them. Know relevant chemistry of their side chains and how they combine to form proteins. Know the levels of protein structure and how denatruants work to unfold their structure. Also be able to work pH and buffer problems. Enzymes: Know the energetics of enzyme action, delta G problems, and enzyme kinetics. Given relevant data, be able to plot it to determine KM and Vmax, as well as the meaning of these terms. Know classes of enzyme inhibitors, how to identify them, and their practical purposes. Carbohydrates: structures, names of a few; relevant facts about their chemistry; disaccharides, polysaccharides, glycosidic bonds, nomenclature, physical and chemical properties. Pathways: How do scientists work out the details of the pathways? How are the main pathways interconnected? For that matter, what are the main pathways? Glycolysis: You should know this one thoroughly. What are the structures and names of the intermediates and coenzymes, what enzymes are responsible, which enzymes are regulated (and how), what is the purpose for glycolysis, what is the input and what is formed in the pathway, and you should know some alternative outcomes for it. In addition, the catalytic mechanisms of a few of the enzymes should be known. Gluconeogenesis: How it differs from glycolysis, its purposes, the role of the Cori cycle. Citric acid cycle: You should know its purposes, how it is regulated, its coenzymes, and the names and structures of the intermediates (and their order). You should also know the formation of acetyl CoA from pyruvate. How Krebs elucidated this cycle should be known. Finally, the roles of this cycle in forming amino acids and their breakdown should be understood....
