Bioenergetics
Much of this is review or already covered
during the last semester. The book covers
it quite well. I will go over this very briefly
in class.
Life's strategies
Autotrophs can use inorganic carbon (CO2)
as their source of carbon.

Pyruvate dehydrogenase
Catalyzes the overall reaction:
pyruvate + CoA + NAD+
acetyl-CoA + CO2 + NADH
Sometime referred to as a "multi-vitamin
pill", because of all of the cofactors it
utilizes. This is a good time to discuss
vitamins, co-enzymes, and h
Carbohydrates
These are oxidized polyhydroxy alcohols.
They all have the general formula (CH2O)n
(n = # of carbons).
Glycerol can be considered the parent
compound, although it is not a carbohydrate.
It can be oxidized to
an aldehyde (glycerald

Intermolecular Forces
1) Electrostatic Interactions - +/- attractions
2) Hydrogen Bonding a super strong dipole-dipole force
-must have hydrogen bound to S, O, N (S-H,O-H or N-H bond)

Glycolysis
Overall:
conversion:
glucose 2 pyruvate
with generation of ATP (2, in this case)
These reactions are the way in which carbohydrate is
broken down into smaller units.
Anaerobic metabolism: The pyruvate is converted to
lactate or ethanol (to r
