  • Goldfish Metabolism

    Metabolism is often viewed as an organic and chemical process that occurs in living organisms which are essential in maintaining life. The main purpose of this mechanism is to convert digested food/fuel to energy and building block for macromolecules, while also eliminating nitrogenous waste through anabolic and catabolic reactions. Catabolic reactions are chemical reactions that breakdown complex organic molecules into simple molecules while releasing energy that is stored within ATP. This stored energy is used to drive anabolic reactions. Anabolic reactions synthesize macromolecules such as proteins, lipids, nucleic acids and carbohydrates in addition to storing energy. Furthermore, ATP can also be released through cellular respiration. Cellular…

  • Metabolism Research Paper

    absorption within animals. Metabolism consists of the chemical reactions that sustain a living state of your cells and organism in your body. Metabolism is the source of energy and balance in your body. (Central, C. 2017).Metabolism is all chemical reactions involved in preserving the living state of the cells and the organism. It is linked closely to nutrition and the availability of nutrients. The formation of energy is one of the vibrant components of metabolism (Mandal, A. 2013). 1. The…

  • The Importance Of Metabolism In The Human Body

    The term metabolism is used to name any type of process that happens in the body. It is mostly used when talking about keeping the cells alive and the body as well. Something like when our mitochondria absorbs the energy in our foods so that we can function in everyday life. Metabolism is important to maintain a stable life system of cells and the rest of our body.It mostly helps to make sure the organism survives. Metabolism mainly occurs by our cells and body absorbing the nutrients out of…

  • Krebs Cycle Metabolism

    III )Krebs cycle The Krebs cycle consists of five major points . There is in firstly the general overwiew of cellular respiration and in secondly mitochondrie 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…

  • Basal Metabolism Research Paper

    Basal Metabolism Basal metabolism is the minimum amount of energy expenditure required per unit of time that is necessary to conduct involuntary bodily functions such as respiration, blood circulation, muscle tone, maintain body temperature, and ultimately maintain life. The human body requires energy to sustain proper body fluids and nutrients that preserve life and health. An individual’s basal metabolism can be determined by finding their basal metabolic rate. According to Respiratory Care…

  • Metabolism: Chemical Reactions In The Human Body

    Metabolism Metabolism is the sum total of all the chemical reactions in the human body. Metabolism is as physical and chemical changes that take place in a human body that provide acceptable energy for life processes and the synthesis of new materials. Metabolism is like a balance between reactions. On this balance there is two sides. Breaking down and building up. Breaking down is known Catabolism. Catabolism is simply breaking down molecules for energy. The buildup part of metabolism is known…

  • Slide Two: Aerobic Metabolism Analysis

    Slide Two- Aerobic Metabolism Metabolism is vital to the body, as it converts proteins, carbohydrates and fats into energy. Aerobic metabolism requires oxygen to function, unlike anaerobic metabolism (Tang, nd). The oxygen breaks down glucose to release energy in the form of ATP, producing carbon dioxide and water as bi-products. The process of aerobic metabolism includes glycolysis, the citric acid cycle, Krebs cycle and the electron transport chain (Pass My Exams, nd). Slide Three- Pyruvate…

  • Effect Of Metabolism On Goldfish Metabolism

    Caffeine Impact on Goldfish Metabolism Introduction Metabolism is a process that enable organisms to maintain their life. Metabolism can be measured in numerous parameters. Within this experiment in order to measure the metabolism rate by determined the level of dissolved oxygen. Goldfish is an example of poikilotherm that are organisms that are influenced by the environment surrounding them. Thus, the manipulation of surrounding can influence the metabolism rate due them being ectotherms.…
