1 Energy and Metabolism Chapter 6

2 Energy The capacity to do work Potential vs Kinetic

3 How is it measured? Heat Calorie Joule = 0.239 Calories
Most energy is provided by the sun

4 Oxidation-reduction reactions
AKA redox OilRig

5 Thermodynamics Energy changes First Law of Thermodynamics
Second Law of Thermodynamics How does this apply to humans?

6 Free Energy The energy Available to do work Delta G= Delta H- TDelta S
H= enthalpy which is the energy contained in the chemical bonds of a substance T= temperature kelvin S= entropy or the energy unavailable due to disorder

7 Endergonic vs Exergonic
If Positive Delta G then the reaction is endergonic If Negative Delta G then the reaction is evergonic

8 Activation Energy Spontaneous Chemical Reactions Require activation energy Catalysts

9 You down with ATP???? The energy currency of cells
Hydrolysis drives endergonic reactions ATP cycles continously

10 Enzymes Biological Catalysts Ligand vs Substrate Active Sites
Are they all proteins?

11 MultiEnzyme Complex Sounds familiar…. 3 advantages
Increases the frequency with which the enzyme collides with the substrate Eliminates the possibility of unwanted reactions All reactions take place within the complex can be controlled as a unit


13 Factors Affecting Enzyme Function
Temperature pH Inhibitors and Activators Allosteric Site Cofactors

14 Inhibitors and Activators

15 Cofactors and Conenzymes
Assists enzyme function Cofactors are usually metal ions Coenzyme- a nonprotein organic molecule- can serve as an electron acceptor in a redox reaction

16 Metabolism Anabolic- use energy Catabolic- need energy
Biochemical Pathways Evolution of BP’s

17 Feedback Inhibition Regulates Biochemical Pathways Why Important?
