Acetyl CoA - an important molecule in metabolism, used in many biochemical reactions. Its main use is to convey the carbon atoms within the acetyl group to the Krebs Cycle to be oxidized for energy production. Aerobic Containing oxygen; referring to
1st Law of Thermodynamics Energy is constant. Energy can be transferred and transformed, but not created or destroyed. AKA: Principle of conservation of energy. 2nd Law of Thermodynamics- All of the chemical and physical processes in a closed system
Active transport - an energy-requiring process that moves material across a cell membrane.
Aquaporin - are integral membrane proteins from a larger family of major intrinsic proteins (MIP) that form pores in the membrane of biological cells
Cellular respiration describes the metabolic reactions and processes that take place in a cell or across the cell membrane to get biochemical energy from fuel molecules and the release of the cells' waste products. There are 4 steps: Glycolysis, oxid
