  • Krebs Cycle Metabolism

    structure then Acetyl-Coa wich contains Production and possible fates then Krebs Cycle wich contains reactions and regulation and finally Glyoxylate cycle. For the general overwiew of cellular respiration we will talk about cellular respiration. Cellular respiration is an aerobic phase of catabolism in which organic fuel molecule are oxidi-zed to H2O and CO2.Cellular respiration occurs in three major stages. The stage one is Acetyl-CoA production with the Glycolysis, The stage two is Acetyl-CoA…

  • Lipogenesis In Sepsis Case Study

    This research study looked at the role of lipogenesis in sepsis. Sepsis is a very serious condition in which a pathogen, bacterial, viral, or fungal, invades the bloodstream and triggers a high inflammatory response by the immune system. The body is unable to remove the pathogen which causes an overproduction of cytokines eventually leading to organ injury and death. As the third leading cause of death in the United States, Australia, and Asia, it is important to develop a treatment for sepsis.¹…

  • Synthesis Of Carbohydrates

    is inhibited by high levels of Acetyl CoA and ATP, this is activated by fructose 1 6-bisphosphate. The product pyruvate is transported from the cytosol to the mitochondrial membranes into the matrix, this process is activated by ADP and AMP. Most pyruvate formed is converted to Acetyl CoA which then enters the Citric Acid Cycle. The citric acid cycle (CAC) takes place in the mitochondrial matrix inside the double mitochondrial membrane. Within this process the acetyl groups are oxidized Thus…

  • Osteoarthritis And Glucosamine Case Study

    Glucosamine is an amino sugar that is produced naturally in humans to make cartilage, the tissue that cushions the joints. In normal joints, cartilage provides a protective jacket that covers the end of each bone which in return provides a smooth, gliding surface for joint motion and acts as a buffer between the bones. When the surface layer of cartilage between the bone of a joint is worn down you more than likely will be diagnosed with osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis is also known as…

  • Cellular Respiration Research Paper

    Each time the Citric Acid Cycle is completed, 2 carbon molecules enter in the form of Acetyl CoA and those molecules exit entirely oxidized. Stage 2 Recap: We now have 2 oxidized 2 carbon molecules, 6 NADH, 2 FADH2, 6 ATP (2 from stage 1 and 4 from stage 2) and CO2. From here the products will continue onto Stage 3, the Electron Transport…

  • Anisole: Exploring Electrophile

    deactivating group. Carboxylic acid pulls electrons from the benzene ring acting as a withdrawing group which causes a slower reaction with the increase of stability and decrease in reactivity due to resonance. The electrophile is formed from acetyl chloride once the aluminum trichloride (AlCl3) is added hence, forming the carbocation and the Tetrachloroaluminate (AlCl4 -). Anisole captures the carbocation which forms resonance of the newly formed carbocation within the benzene ring. The…

  • Running Vs Sprinting

    acid cycle. Anaerobic glycolysis allows the body to produce limited energy when you have low levels of oxygen in your system. When the oxygen supply in your body is abundant, it produces Acetyl-CoA. Acetyl-CoA is an important molecule in metabolism, its main function is to transfer the carbon atoms within the acetyl group to the citric acid cycle to be oxidized for the production of energy. Some people like to say “sprinters, if anything, are wasteful of energy.” The intensity of the activity…

  • Morphine Case Study

    heroin, putting users at even greater risk than if they were ‘just’ receiving heroin. Acetyl Fentanyl (and Close Relatives) Acetyl fentanyl, a cousin of fentanyl, is not approved for medical use. However, every few years there is a cluster of overdose deaths from this very potent opioid. As with fentanyl, acetyl fentanyl manufactured in home laboratories may contain dangerous contaminants and the dust can be lethal. Acetyl fentanyl is about ten times more potent than heroin. Pennsylvania, Rhode…

  • The Citric Acid Cycle

    of reactions which aims to regenerate oxaloacetate for the prolonged continuation of the cycle. Acetyl coenzyme A (acetyl coA) is the input to start the cycle and is derived from glycolysis but first has to go through an intermediate stage, sometimes called the ‘link reaction’ which uses the pyruvate dehydrogenase complex. Pyruvate, the product of glycolysis, releases CO2 and 2 electrons to form acetyl coA which can then enter the cycle. Glycolysis takes place in the cytoplasm of the cell while…

  • Photosynthesis Process

    changes that occur: decarboxylation and dehydrogenation. In the former, CO2 is removed and with the latter, hydrogen is removed. This allows NAD to convert to NADH, once again. From this, we get the product acetyl CoA once the acetyl group and coenzyme A react. This acetyl group of the acetyl CoA is used in the Kreb cycle, helping form a 6 carbon sugar which undergoes oxidative decarboxylation twice, resulting in the loss of two carbon along with the production of some CO2. NAD and FAD also gain…
