Reactions in which small molecules are put together to build larger ones. anabolic reactions require energy. Ex: glucose+glucose=maltose
Reactions in which large molecules are broken down to smaller one. Catabolic reactions release energy. Ex: lactose=glucose+galactose
Energy released is formed into ATP in Electron Transport Chain. Two paths from pyruvate are available ... path taken depends on oxygen availability
the transfer of amino groups from one amino acid to another amino acid. Vitamin B6 is required for transamination reactions
-H2O needed to excrete urea
-Urea is the body's main method of ridding itself of Nitrogen
-higher protein intake = higher Nitrogen = higher urea production
- higher H2O necessary with higher protein intake
-High protein diets place extra strain on kidneys
The krebs cycle
Any substance that can be converted to acetyl CoA directly, or indirectly through pyruvate, may enter the cycle
The formation of glycogen, a glucose storing compound, from fatty acids and proteins rather than carbohydrates. Protein meets glucose via this
body finds a way to use fat to fuel the brain...BAD. acetyl CoA gragments combine to form ketone bodies for energy...BAD
starvation occurs in
-hungry homeless person
