HUMAN ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY KNR 182 STUDY GUIDE for Exam 2 NOTE This guide is to be used a tool to help focus your studying and the test may contain material not specified on this guide You should review all lecture materials and rely heavily on class notes however you are responsible for reading the corresponding text book chapters and all course materials are fair game for the exam including guest speakers Study Guide for Chapter 24 Understand these concepts Substratelevel phosphorylation Occurs when highenergy phosphate groups are transferred directly from phosphorylated substrates metabolic intermediates such as glyceraldehyde 3phosphate to ADP Oxidative phosphorylation The process of ATP synthesis during which an inorganic phosphate group is attached to ADP occurs via the electron transport chain within the mitochondria Glycolysis The breakdown of glucose to pyruvic acid an anaerobic process Kreb39s cycle Aerobic metabolic pathway occurring within the mitochondria in which food metabolites are oxidized and C02 is liberated and coenzymes are reduced Electron transport chain A series of compounds that transfers electrons from electron donors to electron acceptors via redox reactions and couples this electron transfer with the transfer of protons H ions across a membrane Beta oxidation A series of chemical reactions metabolic pathway by which fatty acid chains are made into Acetyl CoA molecules ie prepared for the Krebs cycle Protein DeaminationPyruvatealanine cycle The process in which the amine group NH2 is removed from amino acids before they can be oxidized for energy Study questions 1 Differentiate between an oxidized substance and a reduced substance 0 Oxidized lose electrons energy 0 Reduced gain electrons energy 2 What is metabolism Catabolism Anabolism o Metabolism Biochemical reactions inside cells involving nutrients o The sum of all chemical reactions that occur within a living cell or the ability to produce ATP and use energy 0 Catabolism The energy releasing process by which large molecules are broken down into smaller molecules 0 Anabolism The energy requiring process by which large molecules are broken down into smaller molecules 3 What is a metabolic pathway A series of chemical reactions whereby chemical transformations occur ending up in the formation of ATP 0 All begin with an initial substrate 0 Progresses through intermediates 0 Ends with final products 4 What is an enzyme What are the functions of enzyme with respect to metabolic pathways 0 Enzyme A protein that acts as a biological catalyst to speed up a chemical reaction 0 Functions 0 Lower the energy of activation of a chemical reaction I Enhancing chemical reactions I Lower energy of activation make it easier for chemical reactions to occur I Is not changed during the chemical reaction and can be reused in other chemical processes I Does not change the nature of the reaction or final product 5 With respect to chemical reactions what items need to be present 0 Enzymes 0 Amount of substrate or substrates available 0 All or nothing 6 What is the main function of the Kreb39s cycle To produce H2 compounds 7 What are the final products from Kreb39s cycle 0 3 NADH2 molecules yields 3 ATP NADH2 molecule 0 1 FADH2 molecule yields 2ATPFADH2 o 1 ATP 0 2 C02 MULTIPLY BY 2 IF TALKING ABOUT 1 GLUCOSE MOLECULE BECAUSE IT GOES INTO THE KREBS CYCLE 2 TIMES 8 What is the main function of the Electron Transport Chain Synthesis of ATP 9 What are the final products from Electron Transport Chain 0 3 ATP 0 1 H20 molecule 10 What is glycolysis What purpose does it serve or contribute to ATP production 0 Glycolysis 11 What are the final products from glycolysis From 1 glucose molecule 0 2 pyruvic acid 0 2 NADH2 o 4ATP created Yield 2 because you have to spend 2 ATP as activation energy 12 Differentiate between aerobic and anaerobic glycolysis o Aerobic Glycolysis 0 With oxygen 0 NADH2 delivers H atoms to ETC 0 Enters aerobic pathways if oxygen is readily available 0 2 NADH2 o Anaerobic Glycolysis 0 Without oxygen 0 NADH2 unloads back onto pyruvic acid lactic acid 13 Of what significance is glycolysis to the athlete If you re an athlete and you are performing quick max exertion exercises ie sprints then after a little bit of time when your body is trying to keep up and create more ATP it will eventually run out of oxygen to do so SO what happens is anaerobic glycolysis This does yield some ATP not as much as aerobic glycolysis and lactic acid The lactic acid builds up in your muscles causing them to feel tired heavy and sore 14 How is lactic acid formed Anaerobic Glycolysis When oxygen reenters the system lactate pyruvate Krebs cycle metabolic pathways ATP 15 Is lactic acid dead energy No because when oxygen reenters the system the lactate is converted back to pyruvate which enters the Krebs cycle and turns into ATP most chemical reactions are reversible 16 What is Beta Oxidation What purpose does it serve or contribute to ATP production A series of chemical reactions metabolic pathways by which fatty acid chains are made into Acetyl CoA molecules ie prepared for the Krebs cycle 17 Be able to calculate final products from Beta Oxidation o of Acetyl CoA N2 o 12 ATP per Acetyl CoA o NADH2 amp FADH2 N21 o 3 ATP per NADH2 o 2 ATP per FADH2 0 Add 19 ATP to answer for the energy yield from the glycerol backbone 18 Is ATP formed in the same way from glycerol and fatty acids 0 Glycerol glycerol backbone goes to Glycolysis o The Fatty acid chains go through Beta Oxidation 19 What is deamination What purpose does it serve or contribute to ATP production 0 Deamination The process in which the amine group NH2 is removed from amino acids before they can be oxidized for energy When proteins go through deamination their end product varies depending on the type of protein acetyl CoA pyruvate or acetic acid intermediate 20 Be able to explain the following quotFats burn in a carbohydrate amequot 0 Lipid catabolism is dependent on a continual background usage of glucose catabolism o Lipid catabolism only if sufficient oxaloacetic acid is available to combine with Acetyl Co A formed in Beta Oxidation o In order for lipids to be broken down affectively we must have carbohydrates being broken down in the background 0 Because of the Krebs cycle oxoacetic acid byproduct of pyruvate pyruvate is the end product of glycolysis 21 What is gluconeogenesis What is its importance 0 Gluconeogenesis The process by which glucose is produced from a source other than a carbohydrate o The central nervous system only runs on glucose so when the body is going through a period of fasting or when you have a low carbohydrate intake situations where carb intake is minimal the body uses gluconeogenesis to get the glucose it needs in order for the nervous system to function properly 22 What is RER How can we tell by RER if CHO or lipids are the main energy source 0 RER Respiratory Exchange Ratio The ratio between the amount of C02 exhaled to the amount of 02 inhaled in one breath 0 Carbs 0 Ratio 6C0260210 o Lipids 0 Ratio 16 C02 2302 07 0 Difference in each oxygen used in each carbon that is produced to metabolize lipids you need to have more oxygen Study Guide for Chapter 23 Digestive System Anatomy to know FIGURE IN NOTES 3 Layers of alimentary canal Unique characteristic
