2 Cells break down organic molecules to generate energy (ATP) Energy is used for: growth, cell division, contraction, secretion, and other functions Metabolism is all the chemical reactions that occur in an organism Chemical reactions provide energy and maintain homeostasis: metabolic turnover growth and cell division special processes, such as secretion, contraction, and action potential propagation Metabolism

3 Metabolic reactions could be either catabolic (catabolism) or anabolic (anabolism) Anabolism Anabolism is the formation of new chemical bonds to produce new organic molecules New Organic molecules are needed for/to: Performance of structural maintenance and repairs Support of growth Production of secretions Building of nutrient reserves Metabolism

4 Catabolism Catabolism is the metabolic reactions that breaks down organic substrates in order to release energy Catabolic reactions occur in series of steps Catabolic reactions generate energy by breaking down large molecules to small molecule Small molecules enter Mitochondria to release more energy Metabolism

5 Cells provide small organic molecules for their mitochondria Mitochondria produce ATP that is used by the cell to perform cellular functions i.e. cells feed mitochondria nutrient and in return mitochondria provide the cells with energy (ATP). Mitochondria accept only specific organic molecules e.g. Pyruvic Acid, acetyl coenzyme A Large organic nutrients (e.g. Glucose) are broken down into smaller fragments (e.g. Pyruvic Acid) in the cytoplasm, before they could enter mitochondria Cells and Mitochondria

6 Mitochondria breaks down the molecules to carbon dioxide, water, and generates more energy (ATP) via two pathways: 1. TCA cycle 2. Electron transport system (ETS) Cells and Mitochondria

7 Glycolysis is the process of breakdown of glucose into pyruvic acid Glycolysis occur in the cytoplasm and it requires: One molecule of glucose + 2 ATP + 4ADP + 2NAD + inorganic phosphate + cytoplasmic enzymes Glycolysis generates: Two pryruvic acid + 4ATP +2ADP + 2NADH The net gain of ATP of glycolysis is 2ATP (it produces 4ATP but two of the ATP are used) Carbohydrate Metabolism

8 Aerobic metabolism (cellular respiration) Pyruvic acid will enter mitochondria and generate more ATP via TCA cycle and ETS Two pyruvates = 34 ATP The chemical formula for this process is C 6 H 12 O O 2  6 CO H 2 O Anaerobic metabolism (fermentation) In the absence of oxygen pyruvic acid will not enter mitochondria Pyruvic acid will go through the process of anaerobic respiration and will be converted into Lactic acid This process dose not generate any ATP Carbohydrate Metabolism

9 Glycolysis: Steps in Glycolysis 1) Glucose (a 6 carbon molecule) enters the cell 2) As soon as glucose is inside the cell, a phosphate is added to carbon number 6, and the new molecule is called glucose 6 phosphate. This reaction is called phosphorylation and it requires one ATP, enzyme called hexokinase. 3) Glucose 6 phosphate goes through the second phosphorylation reaction and a phosphate is added to carbone number 1. The new molecule produced as a result is called Fructose 1,6 Bisphosphate 4) The Fructose 1,6 bisphosphate (6 carbon molecule with phosphates attached to carbon 1 and carbon 6) will split into two 3 carbon molecule: 1) Glyceraldehyde 3 phosphate 2) Dihydroxyacetone 5) Each 3 carbon molecule will become a pyruvic acid through number of steps (see the diagram on the left)

10 The two pyruvic acid molecules will enter mitochondria In the mitochondria pyruvic acid will join Coenzyme A (CoA) to form acetyl CoA before entering the TCA cycle. TCA cycle will break down pyruvic acid completely Decarboxylation Hydrogen atoms passed to coenzymes Oxidative phosphorylation Mitochondrial ATP Production (cellular respiration)

11 The TCA Cycle Steps 1) Pyruvic acid combine with coenzyme A to form acetyl coenzyme A. This reaction releases NADH and carbon dioxide 2) Acetyl is a 2 carbon molecule. Acetyl- coenzyme A will give the two carbon molecule (acetyl) to the 4 carbon molecule (oxaloacetic acid) 3) The 4 carbon molecule will become a 6 carbon molecule (citric acid) 4) Citric acid will go through number of steps and will become back a 4 carbon molecule. 5) The TCA cycle will begin with formation of citric acid and end with formation of oxaloacetic acid. 6) The TCA cycle will run twice for one molecule of glucose, because one molecule of glucose produces two pyruvic acid and each pyruvic acid turns once cycle 7) Each cycle of TCA will generate 3NADH, 1FADH2, and 1GTP 8) NADH and FADH2 will enter the electron transport system and generate ATP 9) One NADH = 3ATP and one FADH2 = 2ATP (see ETS)

12 The TCA Cycle Pyruvic acid (a 3 carbon molecule) requires NAD and Coenzyme to form Acetyl coenzyme A This reaction will generate NADH, carbon dioxide and acetyl coenzyme A. Notice that pyruvic acid is a 3 carbon molecule, in this reaction one of the carbons was released as carbon dioxide is formed and two carbon is left as a acetyl Acetyl coenzyme A will transfer the acetyl to oxaloacetic (a 4 carbon molecule) acid and coenzyme A will becomee free. 4 carbon molecule from oxaloacetic acid and two carbon from acetyl will generate a 6 carbon molecule (citric acid) The free coenzyme A will be reused by another pyruvic acid. Citric acid will go through number of steps (e.g. it will become isocetric acid then ketoglutaric acid and so on)and eventually will become oxaloacetic acid

13 The TCA Cycle Citric acid will go through number of steps (e.g. it will become isocetric acid then ketoglutaric acid and so on)and eventually will become oxaloacetic acid

14 Requires coenzymes and consumes oxygen Key reactions take place in the electron transport system (ETS) Cytochromes of the ETS pass electrons to oxygen, forming water The basic chemical reaction is: 2 H 2 + O 2  2 H 2 O Oxidative phosphorylation and the ETS

15 Electron Transport System (ETS) ETS is sequence of proteins called cytochromes Each cytochrome has: A protein - embedded in the inner membrane of a mitochondrion, A pigment

16 Electron Transport System (ETS) STEP1: coenzyme strips a pair of hydrogen atoms from a substrate molecule. STEP2: NADH and FADH 2 deliver hydrogen atoms to coenzymes embedded in the inner membrane of a mitochondrion. STEP3: Coenzyme Q accepts hydrogen atoms from FMNH 2 and FADH 2 and passes electrons to cytochrome b. STEP4: Electrons are passed along the electron transport system, losing energy in a series of small steps. The sequence is cytochrome b to c to a to a 3. STEP5: At the end of the ETS, an oxygen atom accepts the electrons, creating an oxygen ion (O – ). This ion has a very strong affinity for hydrogen ions (H + ); water is produced.

29 Carbohydrate Breakdown and Synthesis

30 Lipolysis Lipids broken down into pieces that can be converted into pyruvate For example triglycerides are split into glycerol and fatty acids Glycerol enters glycolytic pathways Fatty acids enter the mitochondrion Lipid catabolism

31 Beta-oxidation Breakdown of fatty acid molecules into 2-carbon fragments Lipids and energy production Used when glucose reserves are limited Lipid catabolism

32 Beta Oxidation In beta oxidation long chain of fatty acids are broken down into fragments of two carbons. Say we have a fatty acid chain that is 18 carbon long. During beta oxidation fragments of two carbon will be removed from the chain of fatty acid. So after the first round of reaction (as shown in the figure) a fatty acid chain that is 16 carbon long will remain, after the second round of reactions a fatty acid chain that 14 carbon long will remain For each round of reaction two carbon will be removed from the chain. As two carbons are removed from the chain, NADH, FADH2 and Acetyl CoA will be generated. The steps in beta oxidation: 1) Coenzyme A bind to fatty acid. This step requires one ATP 2) This reaction will prepare fatty acid for beta oxidation and generate a fatty acid attached to CoA

33 Beta Oxidation 3) The first round of beta oxidation will generate one NADH, one FADH2 and one Acetyl CoA 4) Acetyl CoA will enter TCA cycle and generate 3NADH, 1FADH and 1GTP. 3NADH = 9ATP, 1FADH2 = 2ATP, and GTP = 1ATP.

34 Beta Oxidation 5) NADH and FADH2 will enter the ETS and generate ATP 1NADH = 3ATP 1FADH2 = 2ATP Summary : one round of beta oxidation will generate : NADH = 3ATP FADH2 = 2ATP Acetyl CoA = 12ATP So if each round of beta oxidation produces 17ATP, then one molecule of fat will produce a lot more ATP (energy) than one molecule of glucose. Remember that glucose produced 2ATP in glycolysis and 34/36ATP via TCA and ETS

35 If other sources inadequate, mitochondria can break down amino acids TCA cycle The first step in amino acid catabolism is the removal of the amino group (-NH 2 ) The amino group is removed by transamination or deamination Transamination – attaches removed amino group to a keto acid Deamination – removes amino group generating NH 4 + Proteins are an impractical source of ATP production Protein Metabolism Amino acid catabolism

36 Oxidation, Reduction, and Energy Transfe Enzymatic steps of oxidative phosphorylation involve oxidation and reduction The loss of electrons is oxidation; the acceptance of electrons is reduction Electron donor is oxidized (loss energy) and electron recipient reduced (gain energy) Reduced molecule does not acquire all the energy released by oxidized molecule – thus some energy is released as heat, and formation of ATP Coenzyme acts as intermediary that accepts electrons from one molecule and transfer it to another In Kreb Cycle NAD and FAD remove hydrogen atoms from organic substrates NADH and FADH 2, the reduced forms of NAD and FAD, transfer their hydrogen to other coenzymes Protons are released, and the electrons, which carry the chemical energy, enter a sequence of oxidation–reduction reactions 36
