Chapter 1 (GO BACK AND LOOK AT NOTES)
-living systems are actively engaged in energy transformations/capacity for self-replication
-organisms capture energy in the form of ATP (phosphates) and NADPH (N w/ carboxyNH2)
-Bond energy single: ~300-400 Kj/mol

Acetyl-coenzyme a carboxylase carboxyltransferase domain
Acetyl-coenzyme a carboxylase carboxyltransferase domain (1od2) from Saccharomyces
cerevisiae (Bakers yeast) is useful in the discovery of remedial methods for combating obesity
and obesity related
1. MM equation 1. What is the v/Vmax ration when [S]=4Km?
a. v= Vmax [S]/Km+[S].
=v/Vmax is 0.8
2. MM equation 2. If Vmax= 100umol/mL*sec and Km= 2 mM, what is the velocity of
the rxn when [S]= 20mM?
1. What is the function of the Na-pump and why is it important for an organism?
- Maintain concentration gradients of Na+ K+ in cell that differ greatly w/
outside environment. Drives many secondary active trans processes and active
Most common mistakes (and fixes):
*If you have a nucleotide containing protein/ligand, nucleotide bases are left uncolored (see Tutorial 15:
*If a slide is focusing on a detail of the protein (i.e. the active site residues) instead o
