Carbohydrate Metabolism – Basic Overview

carbohydrate metabolism

Since all digestible forms of carbohydrates are eventually transformed into glucose, it is important to consider how glucose is able to provide energy in the form of Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) to various cells and tissues. Glucose is metabolized in three stages in carbohydrate metabolism. They are… Glycolysis the Krebs Cycle …

Isoenzymes are Special Proteins with Catalytic activity. Why? (MCQ)

isoenzymes

Isoenzymes are proteins with a different structure that catalyze the same reaction. Frequently they are oligomers made with different polypeptide chains, so they usually differ in regulatory mechanisms and in kinetic characteristics. From the physiological point of view, isozymes allow the existence of similar enzymes with different characteristics, “customized” to …

Van der Waals Forces : Special Intermolecular forces

Van der Waals Forces : Special Intermolecular forces

Van der Waals forces’ is a general term used to define the attraction of intermolecular forces between molecules. There are two kinds of Van der Waals forces: weak London Dispersion Forces and stronger dipole-dipole forces. Introduction The chance that an electron of an atom is in a certain area in …

What are allosteric enzymes and their function?

allosteric enzymes and its regulation

A Modulator is a metabolite that, when bound to the allosteric site of an enzyme, alter its kinetic characteristics. The modulators of allosteric enzymes may be either stimulatory or inhibitory. Many enzymes do not demonstrate hyperbolic saturation kinetics or typical Michaelis-Menten kinetics. Graphs of initial velocity vs. substrate demonstrate the …
