the enzymatic degradation of carbohydrates in which the final electron acceptor is an organic molecule, ATP is synthesized by substrate-level phosphorylation and o2 is not required.
conversion of light energy from the sun into chemical energy; the chemical energy is used for carbon fixation.
Biosynthetic mechanisms
Polysaccharide biosynthesis
glycogen from from ADPG
UDPNFAc is the starting material fro the biosynthesis for peptidoglycan
Lipid Biosynthesis
lipids are synthesized from fatty acids and glycerol.
Glycerol is derived from dihydroxyacetone phosphate, and fatty acids are buld from acetyl COa
Amino Acid and Protein Biosynthesis
amino acids are required for protein biosynthesis.All amino acids can be synthesized either directly or indirectly from intermidiates of carbohydrate metabolism, particularly from krebs cycle.
