Carbohydrates- body uses carbohydrates to make glucose which is the body’s main energy source. Lipids- metabolized for use as a primary energy source. Proteins- some enzymes help to break down large nutrient molecules Nucleic acids- Nucleotide synthesis is an anabolic mechanism generally involving the chemical reaction of phosphate, pentose sugar, and a nitrogenous base. 5.Which nutrient molecule is the universal energy source and is preferred by nerve cells? 6.List the steps of aerobic respiration using glucose. How many ATP molecules are made at each step? How many total? 7.List the reactants and products for: 8.How is cellular respiration regulated?
