A/an_____protein lacks one or more essential amino acids.
In the postabsorptive state, glycogen is hydrolyzed to liberate glucose. This process is called_______.
Synthesis of glucose from amino acids or triglyercides is called_______.
The major nitrogenous waste resulting from protein catabolism is_____.
The organ that synthesizes the nitrogenous waste in question 14 is the_____.
The absorptive state is regulated mainly by the hormone_______.
The temperature of organs in the body cavities is called_____.
core temperature

The brightly colored, iron-containing, electron-transfer molecules of the inner mitochondrial membrane are called______.
The flow of Hydrogen ions from the intermembrane space to the mitochondrial matrix creates an electrical current used by the enzyme______to make______.
ATP synthase, ATP
T/F Orexin and leptin are two hormones that stimulate the appetite.
False, Leptin surpresses the appetite.
T/F Water is a nutrient, but O2 and cellulose are not.
T/F An extremely low-fat diet can cause vitamin-deficiency diseases.
T/F Most of the body's cholesterol comes from the diet.
False, most of the cholesterol is endogenous (originated internally), not dietary (food taken in).
T/F There is no harm in maximizing one's daily protein intake.
False, excessive protein intake can cause renal damage.
T/F Aerobic resperation produces more ATP than anaerobic fermentation.
T/F Reactions occurring on the mitochondrial inner membrane produce more ATP than glycolysis and the matrix reactions combined.
T/F Gluconeogenesis occurs especially in the absorptive state during and shortly after a meal.
False, Gluconeogenesis is a post-absorptive phenomenom.
T/F Brown fat generates more ATP than white fat and is therefore especially important for thermoregulation.
False, Brown fat does not generate ATP
T/F At a comfortable air temperature, the body loses more heat as infared radiation than by any other means.
