Citric acid cycle : Central metabolic cycle and its Significance

Citric acid cycle : Central metabolic cycle and its Significance

Citric acid cycle is also called Krebs Cycle and Tricarboxylic acid cycle. The citric acid cycle is a aerobic universal Acetyl~coA catabolic cycle. It is a central metabolic cycle. The cycle was first elucidated by scientist “Sir Hans Adolf Krebs” (LT, 1900 to 1981). He shared the Nobel Prize for ...

Glycolysis – Glucose Catabolic Pathway

Glycolysis - Glucose Catabolic Pathway

Glycolysis literally means “splitting sugars”. In glycolysis, glucose (a six carbon sugar) is split into two molecules of a three-carbon sugar. Glycolysis yields two molecules of ATP (free energy containing molecule), two molecules of pyruvic acid and two “high energy” electron carrying molecules of NADH. Glycolysis can occur with or ...

Electron Transport Chain Components in Mitochondria

Electron Transport Chain Components in Mitochondria

There are five different kinds of electron carriers that participate in the transport of electrons from substrates as they are oxidized in the mitochondria. In addition, Cu+2 is present and functions in the enzyme, Cytochrome oxidase, that catalyses the reduction of O2. Mitochondrial Electron Transport Chain components: (1) Nicotinamide Nucleotides: ...

Basic Components of Nucleic Acids – Purines and Pyrimidines

Basic Components of Nucleic Acids - Purines and Pyrimidines

One of the important specialized pathways of amino acids and the synthesis of purine and pyrimidine nucleotides. These nucleotides are important for a number of reasons. Most of them, not just ATP, are the sources of energy that drive most of our reactions. ATP is the most commonly used source ...

Uric Acid formation : Purine Nucleotide Catabolism

Uric Acid formation : Purine Nucleotide Catabolism

Because nucleic acids are ubiquitous in cellular material, significant amounts are ingested in the diet. Nucleic acids are degraded in the digestive tract to nucleotides by various nucleases and phosphodiesterases. Nucleotides are then converted to nucleosides by base-specific nucleotidases and nonspecific phosphatases.                 NMP + H2O         ...
