    citric 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…

  • Case Study: Atkins Or Fadkins

    Elizabeth Barron Winters July 9th, 2017 Case study 1 Atkins or Fadkins Part 1: Macronutrients and energy Question 1: Proteins: do most of the work in the cells, required for structure, function, and regulation of the bodys tissues and organs. They also transport nutrients and are catalyst. Examples of proteins are nuts, meats, and beans. Carbohydrates: source of energy for the body, simple and complex carbs. Examples are fruits, pasta, sugar, and, grain. Fats: store energy, aid in…

  • Nitrogen Cycle Research Paper

    QXT2- Task 6 “No man is an island no man stands alone”, no entity on Earth can survive without interacting with abiotic factors. Organisms strive daily for survival. Their survival is predicated on receiving enough energy and nutrients to carry out metabolism and maintain homeostasis. Survival of a species is determined by the fitness of an organism within its environment and how successful it is at passing its genes on to its progeny. When examining the interactions that must be carried out…

  • Subterranean Ecosystems

    qualitative changes in the body composition of crustaceans (Gilbert and Mathieu, 1980; Barclay et al 1983). The relative importance of different metabolite reserve depends on the period of starvation as well as on species-specific differences in metabolism and its regulation (Hervant et al, 1999; Caruso et al, 2008). Lipids play an important role as reserves in cave adapted amphipod N. virei. When N. virei and N. rhenorhodanensis were starved for 6 months, N. virei depleted lipids to a greater…

  • Mineral Vitamins Essay

    regulators of cell and tissue growth and differentiation (e.g. vitamin A). The largest number of vitamins (e.g. B complex vitamins) function as precursors for enzyme cofactor bio-molecules (coenzymes), that help act as catalysts and substrates in metabolism. When acting as part of a catalyst, vitamins are bound to enzymes and are called prosthetic groups. For example, biotin is part of enzymes involved in making fatty acids. Vitamins also act as coenzymes to carry chemical groups between…

  • Three Elements Of Carbohydrates: Glycogen, And Protein

    Carbohydrates are the molecular compounds that are made of three elements that include hydrogen, carbon, and oxygen (Baxter 10). The glucose and the sucrose are essential but are comparatively small molecules with RNA, DNA, glycoproteins, glycolipids, and ATP as other molecules. Carbohydrates are called the sugars in many cases, which provide a source of energy for the body cells, for instance, glucose and starch. The giant carbohydrates are building block, for instance, glycogen and cellulose.…

  • Cellular Respiration Level 3 Analysis

    source of energy to function. Cellular respiration is a specific set of metabolic relations that occur in cells of organisms to convert biochemical energy as ATP and release products. The reactions of cellular respiration are glycolysis, pyruvate metabolism, Krebs cycle, and electron transport chain (ETC). The pathways are either aerobic meaning they need oxygen to occur or anaerobic meaning they don’t need oxygen to occur. Glucose is a simple sugar that is used as an energy source for many…

  • Effects Of Crustaceans

    aquatic forms of crustaceans to levels of oxidative metabolism lower than those found in many air-breathing forms. This is largely due to the lower relative content of oxygen in water and the higher oxidative cost of ventilating a dense and viscous medium compared with air. Not all crustaceans meet a reduction in oxygen with increased ventilation and metabolism. The square-backed crabs (Sesarma) become less active, reducing their oxidative metabolism until more favourable conditions…

  • The Citric Acid Cycle

    Abstract The citric acid cycle, also known as the Krebs cycle or tricarboxylic acid cycle, is central to the formation of usable energy forms in cells. This essay will give detail on how this is achieved and the cycle’s links to other metabolic pathways such as oxidative phosphorylation. It will also explore how the cycle functions in anabolic and catabolic forms while replenishing used intermediates before examining how the cycle is regulated. Introduction The citric acid cycle being named…
