This is the Intermediary Metabolism category. In this category included Carbohydrate metabolism, Amino acid Metabolism, Nucleic Acid Metabolism, Lipid Metabolism and Biological oxidation.
Glycolysis is taking place in Cytoplasm. So Pyruvate is generated in Cytoplasm. This is to be transports into mitochondria by a Pyruvate transporter. It is a simport, where the hydrogen ion is... Read more »
Gluconeogenesis is the process of synthesizing glucose from non-carbohydrate sources. Gluconeogenesis occurs mainly in liver. Gluconeogenesis occurs to a more limited extent in the kidney and small intestine under some conditions. Definition... Read more »
The Hexose MonoPhosphate Shunt is also known as “Pentose phosphate Pathway” (PPP). This is alternative Glucose oxidation pathway. The hexose monophosphate pathway is used for production of NADPH from NADP. The NADPH is required for ... Read more »
Carbohydrate metabolism denotes the various biochemical processes responsible for the formation, breakdown and interconversion of carbohydrates in living organisms. The most important carbohydrate is glucose, a simple sugar (monosaccharide) that is metabolized... Read more »
“Synthesis of Glycogen from Glucose is called GLYCOGENESIS. It takes place in the Cytosol and requires ATP and UTP, besides Glucose.” The goal of glycolysis, glycogenolysis, and the citric acid cycle is... Read more »
