BIOL 1110 REEDER LIPID amp PROTEIN METABOLISM I Lipid amp Protein Conversion A Gluconeogenesis When a person s liver runs low in glycogen the hunger sensation is stimulated a Glycogen is a reserve form of glucose stored as a polysaccharide primarily in the liver and some stored in skeletal muscle b An animal has limited glycogen storage capability providing about one day39s supply of glucose As the glycogen reserves diminish lipids and proteins are catabolized with stored fats representing the greatest reserve fuel in the body fats are the body s secondfavorite energy source due to being more difficult to metabolize than carbohydrates a Generally fats primarily with a few of the body s proteins 1 Most ofthe usable fat resides in adipose tissue that is composed of specialized cells packed with globules of triglycerides 2 Adipose tissue is widely distributed in the abdominal cavity in muscles around deep blood vessels and especially under the skin women average about 30 more fat than men a 50 stored in subcutaneous 12 around kidneys 1015 in omenta 20 in genital areas and 58 between muscles b The conversion of fat and protein molecules in the liver to glucose is called gluconeogenesis 1 Like glucose fatty acids glycerol and amino acids must be converted into glucose breakdown products intermediate before they are catabolized most of the reactions are reversible B Lipid Metabolism 1 Storage a Fats stored are derived principally from surplus fats and carbohydrates in the diet 1 Since acetyl CoA is the source of carbon atoms used to build fatty acids and all major organic classes carbohydrates fats and proteins can be degraded to acetyl CoA all can then be converted into stored fat b Fat does not remain stationary until needed for energy but is continually released from storage transported through the blood and redeposited in other adipose tissue 1 Possibly as much as one half of the total bodyfat reserve changes position daily c Amino acids may be transformed into lipids like glucose by first being converted to glucose or to a glucosebreakdown product and then conversion to glycerol and fatty acids 2 Catabolism a Glycerol when fats are metabolized they are first separated into glycerol and fatty acids in the liver and then catabolized separately 1 It is then further converted in the liver to the intermediate product PGAL glyceraldehyde 3 phosphate b Fatty Acids contains the bulk of a fat molecule39s potential energy 1 Involves a series of reactions involving the liver called beta oxidation a Twocarbon fragments are removed and converted into acetyl CoA which can be converted to glucose and catabolized by any cell b Most of the fragments however are converted into acetone or keto acids in which the liver cannot convert any further released into the blood other cells may N gtllt bioll 1 10ilipidjrotein 112603 REEDER BIOL 1110 ORGANIC COMPOUNDS 1 Carbohydrates gt lt gt lt bioll 1 loyorganicycompounds Function

important to living things hum ans One protein differs from another by number of type and arrangement or order of amino acids making it up39 order will determine how the protein will fold into a threedimensional configuration determined by the genetic code of NA A protein is formed by bonding carboxyl group of one molecule to amino group of another A peptide bond is formed by removal of an HZO molecule Two amino acids bonded is a dipeptide a longer chain is a polypeptide A polypeptide contains an unspecified number of amino acids but usually has more than 20 and is often a smaller subunit of a larger distinctlyshaped protein A protein is the largest of this compound class and usually contains a minimum of 50 amino acids It is common for the terms polypeptide and protein to be used interchangeably though not all polypeptides are large enough to be considered proteins There are 4 levels of protein structure that ultimately results in a functional shape39 DNA s information

called neutral fat Digestion must split a neutral fat into monoglycerides and fatty acids before absorption can take place Glycerol is the only water soluble fat component Condensation involves removal of water molecules to link a fatty acid to the glycerol forming an m bond Hydrolysis reverses this via heating in acid or enzymatic treatment All glycerol soluble component molecules are alike
