Chapter 25 Metabolism Ob39ectives Role of ATP in anabolism and catabolism Oxidationreduction reactions Carbohydrate metabolism Lipid metabolism Protein metabolism Heat and energy balance Nutrition guidelines minerals and vitamins Metabolism Functions of food source of energy essential nutrients stored for future use Metabolism is all the chemical reactions ofthe body some reactions produce the energy stored in ATP that other reactions consume all molecules will eventually be broken down and recycled or excreted from the body Catabolism and Anabolism Catabolic reactions breakdown complex organic compounds providing energy exergonic glycolysis Krebs cycle and electron transport Anabolic reactions synthesize complex molecules from small molecules requiring energy endergonic Exchange of energy requires use of ATP adenosine triphosphate molecule ATP Molecule amp Energy Each cell has about 1 billion ATP molecules that last for less than one minute Over half of the energy released from ATP is converted to heat Energy Transfer Energy is found in the bonds between atoms Oxidation is a decrease in the energy content of a molecule Reduction is the increase in the energy content ofa molecule Oxidationreduction reactions are always coupled within the body whenever a substance is oxidized another is almost simultaneously reduced Oxidation and Reduction Biological oxidation involves the loss of electrons hydrogen atoms dehydrogenation reactions require coenzymes to transfer hydrogen atoms to another compound common coenzymes of living cells that carry H NAD nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide NADP nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate FAD avin adenine dinucleotide Biological reduction is the addition of electrons hydrogen atoms to a molecule increase in potential energy ofthe molecule Mechanisms of ATP Generation Phosphorylation is bond attaching 3rd phosphate group contains stored energy Mechanisms of phosphorylation within animals substratelevel phosphorylation in cytosol oxidative phosphorylation in mitochondria in chlorophyllcontaining plants or bacteria photophosphorylation Phosphorylation in Animal Cells ln cytoplasm 1 ln mitochondria 2 3 amp 4 Carbohydrate Metabolismln Review 0 ln GI tract polysaccharides broken down into simple sugars absorption of simple sugars glucose fructose amp galactose 0 ln liver fructose amp galactose transformed into glucose storage of glycogen also in muscle 0 ln body cells functions of glucose oxidized to produce energy conversion into something else storage energy as triglyceride in fat Fate of Glucose ATP production during cell respiration uses glucose preferentially Converted to one of several amino acids in many different cells throughout the body Glycogenesis hundreds of glucose molecules combined to form glycogen for storage in liver amp skeletal muscles Lipogenesis triglyceride synthesis converted to glycerol amp fatty acids within liver amp sent to fat cells Glucose Movement into Cells In GI tract and kidney tubules Naglucose symporters Most other cells GluT facilitated diffusion transporters move glucose into cells 7 insulin increases number of GluT transporters in the membrane of most cells 7 in liver amp brain always lots of GluT transporters Glucose 6 phosphate forms immediately inside cell requires ATP thus glucose hidden in cell Concentration gradient favorable for more glucose to enter Glucose Catabolism 39 Cellular respiration 4 steps are involved glucose 02 produces H20 energy C02 39 Anaerobic respiration called glycolysis 1 formation of acetyl CoA 2 is transitional step to Krebs cycle 39 Aerobic respiration Krebs cycle 3 and electron transport chain 4 Glycolysis of Glucose amp Fate of Pyruvic Acid Breakdown of sixcarbon glucose molecule into 2 threecarbon molecules of pyruvic acid 10 step process occurring in cell cytosol produces 4 molecules of ATP after input of 2 ATP utilizes 2 NAD molecules as hydrogen acceptors lfO2 shortage in a cell pyruvic acid is reduced to lactic acid so that NAD will be still available for further glycolysis rapidly diffuses out of cell to blood liver cells remove it from blood amp convert it back to pyruvic acid Formation ofAcetyl Coenzyme A Pyruvic acid enters the mitochondria with help oftransporter protein Decarboxylation pyruvate dehydrogenase converts 3 carbon pyruvic acid to 2 carbon fragment CO2 produced pyruvic acid was oxidized so that NAD becomes NADH 2 carbon fragment acetyl group is attached to Coenzyme A to form Acetyl coenzyme A which enter Krebs cycle coenzyme A is derived from pantothenic acid B vitamin Krebs Cycle Citric Acid Cycle Series of oxidationreduction amp decarboxylation reactions occurring in matrix of mitochondria lt finishes the same as it starts 4C 7 acetyl CoA 2C enters at top amp combines with a 4C compound 7 2 decarboxylation reactions peel 2 carbons off again when CO2 is formed Krebs Cycle Energy stored in bonds is released step by step to form several reduced coenzymes NADH amp FADH2 that store the energy In summary each Acetyl CoA molecule that enters the Krebs cycle produces 2 molecules of C02 one reason 02 is needed 3 molecules of NADH H one molecule of ATP one molecule of FADH2 39 Remember each glucose produced 2 acetyl CoA molecules The Electron Transport Chain Series ofintegral membrane proteins in the inner mitochondrial membrane capable of oxidationreduction Each electron carrier is reduced as it picks up electrons and is oxidized as it gives up electrons Small amounts ofenergy released in small steps Energy used to form ATP by chemiosmosis Chemiosmosis Small amounts ofenergy released as substances are passed along inner membrane Energy used to pump H ions from matrix into space between inner amp outer membrane High concentration of H is maintained outside of inner membrane ATP synthesis occurs as H diffuses through a special H channel in inner membrane Electron Carriers Flavin mononucleotide FMN is derived from riboflavin vitamin B2 Cytochromes are proteins with heme group iron existing either in reduced form Fe2 or oxidized form Fe3 Ironsulfur centers contain 2 or 4 iron atoms bound to sulfur within a protein Copper Cu atoms bound to protein Coenzyme Q is nonprotein carrier mobile in the lipid bilayer ofthe inner membrane Steps in Electron Transport Carriers ofelectron transport chain are clustered into 3 complexes that each act as proton pump expel H Mobile shuttles pass electrons between complexes Last complex passes its electrons 2H to a half of 02 molecule to form a water molecule H20 Proton Motive Force amp Chemiosmosis Buildup of H outside the inner membrane creates charge 7 electrochemical gradient potential energy is called proton motive force ATP synthase enzyme within H channel uses proton motive force to synthesize ATP from ADP and P Summary of Cellular Respiration Glucose 02 is broken down into C02 H20 energy used to form 36 to 38 ATPs 7 2 ATP are formed during glycolysis 7 2 ATP are formed by phosphorylation during Krebs cycle 7 electron transfers in transport chain generate 32 or 34 ATPs from one glucose molecule Summary in Table 251 Points to remember 7 ATP must be transported out of mitochondria in exchange for ADP uses up some of proton motive force 7 Oxygen is required or many of these steps can not occur Carbohydrate Loading 0 Longterm athletic events marathons can exhaust glycogen stored in liver and skeletal muscles 0 Eating large amounts of complex carbohydrates pasta amp potatoes for 3 days before a marathon maximizes glycogen available for ATP production 0 Useful

body cell if cells have insuf cient receptors remains in blood and more likely to deposit cholesterol in artery walls plaque HDLs 40 protein good cholesterol 7 carry cholesterol from cells to liver for elimination Blood Cholesterol Sources of cholesterol in the body 7 food eggs dairy organ meats meat 7 synthesized by the liver All fatty foods still raise blood cholesterol 7 liver uses them to create cholesterol 7 stimulate reuptake of cholesterol containing bile normally lost in the feces Desirable readings for adults 7 total cholesterol under 200 mgdL triglycerides 10190 mgdL 7 LDL under 130 mgdL HDL over 40 mgdL 7 cholesterolHDL ratio above 4 is undesirable risk Raising HDL amp lowering cholesterol can be accomplished by exercise diet amp drugs Fate of Lipids Oxidized to produce ATP Excess stored in adipose tissue or liver Synthesize structural or important molecules phospholipids of plasma membranes lipoproteins that transport cholesterol thromboplastin for blood clotting myelin sheaths to speed up nerve conduction cholesterol used to synthesize bile salts and steroid hormones Triglyceride Storage Adipose tissue removes triglycerides from chylomicrons and VLDL and stores it 50 subcutaneous 12 near kidneys 15 in omenta 15 in genital area 8 between muscles Fats in adipose tissue are everchanging released transported amp deposited in other adipose Triglycerides store more easily than glycogen do not exert osmotic pressure on cell membranes are hydrophobic Lipid Catabolism Lipolysis amp Glycerol 39 Triglycerides are split into fatty acids amp glycerol by lipase glycerol if cell ATP levels are high converted into glucose if cell ATP levels are low converted into pyruvic acid which enters aerobic pathway to ATP production Lipolysis amp Fatty acids Beta oxidation in mitochondria removes 2 carbon units from fatty acid amp forms acetyl coenzyme A Liver cells form acetoacetic acid from 2 carbon units amp ketone bodies from acetoacetic acid ketogenesis 7 heart muscle amp kidney cortex prefer to use acetoacetic acid for ATP production Lipid Anabolism Lipogenesis 39 Synthesis of lipids by liver cells lipogenesis from amino acids converted to acetyl CoA amp then to triglycerides from glucose from glyceraldehyde 3phosphate to triglycerides 39 Stimulated by insulin when eat excess calories Ketosis 0 Blood ketone levels are usually very low many tissues use ketone for ATP production 0 Fasting starving or high fat meal with few carbohydrates results in excessive beta oxidation amp ketone production acidosis ketoacidosis is abnormally low blood pH sweet smell of ketone body acetone on breath occurs in diabetic since triglycerides are used for ATP production instead of glucose amp insulin inhibits lipolysis Fate of Proteins 0 Proteins are broken down into

Molecules at Metabolic Crossroads Glucose 6 phosphate pyruvic acid and acetyl coenzyme A play pivotal roles in metabolism Different reactions occur because of nutritional status or level of physical activity Role of Glucose 6 Phosphate Glucose is converted to glucose 6 phosphate just after entering the cell Possible fates ofglucose 6 phosphate used to synthesize glycogen when glucose is abundant ifglucose 6 phosphatase is present glucose can be rereleased from the cell precursor ofa vecarbon sugar used to make RNA amp DNA converted to pyruvic acid during glycolysis in most cells of the body

pyruvic acid is changed to lactic acid Conversions amino acid alanine produced from pyruvic acid to oxaloacetic acid of Krebs cycle Role of Acetyl coenzyme A Can be used to synthesize fatty acids ketone bodies or cholesterol Can not be converted to pyruvic acid so can not be used to reform glucose Metabolic Adaptations Absorptive state nutrients entering the bloodstream glucose readily available for ATP production 4 hours for absorption of each meal so absorptive state lasts for 12 hoursday Postabsorptive state absorption of nutrients from GI tract is complete body must meet its needs without outside nutrients late morning late afternoon amp most ofthe evening assuming no snacks lasts about 12 hoursday more cells use ketone bodies for ATP production maintaining a steady blood glucose level is critical Metabolism during Absorptive State Body cells use glucose for ATP production about 50 of absorbed glucose Storage of excess fuels occur in hepatocytes adipocytes amp skeletal muscle most glucose entering liver cells is converted to glycogen 1 0 or triglycerides 40 dietary lipids are stored in adipose tissue amino acids are deaminated to enter Krebs cycle or are converted to glucose or fatty acids amino acids not taken up by hepatocytes used by other cells for synthesis of proteins Regulation of Metabolism during Absorptive State 0 Beta cells of pancreas release insulin 0 lnsulin s functions increases anabolism amp synthesis of storage molecules decreases catabolic or breakdown reactions promotes entry of glucose amp amino acids into cells stimulates phosphorylation ofglucose enhances synthesis oftriglycerides stimulates protein synthesis along with thyroid amp growth hormone Metabolism During Postabsorptive State Maintaining normal blood glucose level 70 to 110 mg100 ml of blood is major challenge glucose enters blood from 3 major sources glycogen breakdown in liver produces glucose glycerol from adipose converted by liver into glucose gluconeogenesis using amino acids produces glucose alternative fuel sources are fatty acids from fat tissue fed into Krebs as acetyl CoA lactic acid produced anaerobically during exercise oxidation of ketone bodies by heart amp kidney Most body tissue switch to utilizing fatty acids except brain still need glucose Regulation of Metabolism During Postabsorptive State As blood glucose level declines pancreatic alpha cells release glucagon glucagon stimulates gluconeogenesis amp glycogenolysis within the liver Hypothalamus detects low blood sugar sympathetic neurons release norepinephrine and adrenal medulla releases norepinephrine amp epinephrine stimulates glycogen breakdown amp lipolysis raises glucose amp free fatty acid blood levels Metabolism During Fasting amp Starvation Fasting means going without food for hoursdays Starvation means weeks or months can survive 2 months or more if drink enough water amount of adipose tissue is determining factor Nutritional needs nervous tissue amp RBC need glucose so amino acids will be broken down for guconeogenesis blood glucose stabilizes at 65 mg1OO mL lipolysis releases glycerol used in guconeogenesis increase in formation of ketone bodies by liver cells due to catabolism of fatty acids by 40 days ketones supply 23 s of brains fuel for ATP Absorption of Alcohol 0 Absorption begins in the stomach but is absorbed more quickly in the small intestine fat rich foods keep the alcohol from leaving the stomach and prevent a rapid rise in blood alcohol a gastric mucosa enzyme breaks down some of the alcohol to acetaldehyde 0 Females develop higher blood alcohols have a smaller blood volume have less gastric alcohol dehydrogenase activity Metabolic Rate 39 Rate at which metabolic reactions use energy energy
