Glycolysis Embdem Meyerhof Pathway Glucose enters the cell In the cytoplasm the 6 carbon glucose is broken down to two 3 carbon compounds pyruvate pyruVic acid or lactate lactic acid If there is enough oxygen then pyruvate forms giVing 5 ATPs to the good If there is not enough oxygen lactate forms giVing only 2 ATPs to the good Without oxygen the term anaerobic is used Pyruvate goes into the mitochondria where it is completely oxidized to carbon dioxide and ATP is formed ATP gt ADP ATP gt ADP glucose glucose6phos fructose 6phos fructose 16diphos fructose 16 bisphos NADH NAD 13diphospho lt

OVERVIEW OF WHAT HAPPENS IN THE CYTOPLASM 1 glucose yields 2 pyruVic acids or 5 ATPs 2 ATPs are needed for start up 2 lactic acids 2 ATPs to the good You make 2 ATPs when the diphosphate l3diphospglyceric acid goes to the monophosphate 3phosphoglyceric acid You make 2 ATPs when the monophosphate PEP goes to a nonphosphate compound pyruVic acid Why do you get 2 ATPs Because you get 2 glyceraldehydes from 1 glucose When you get 2 pyruVic acids as the end product you make 2 NADHHs worth 15 ATPs each 3 ATP When you get 2 lactic acids as the end product you use up the the NADHs generated so you do not get the extra ATPs Tally Pyruvic acid Start up 2 ATP 2 l3diphosphoglyceric acid 2 ATP goes to 3 phosphoglyceric acid 2 phosphoenol pyruVic acid 2 ATP goes to pyruVic acid 2 NADHHs formed in cytoplasm 3 ATP 2 ATPs each when the aldehyde goes to the glyceric acid 2 NADHs used up when pyruVic 0 ATP acid goes to lactic acid in the cytoplasm 2 ATPs each Net ATPs 5 ATP Lactic acid 2 ATP 2 ATP 2 ATP 3 ATP 3ATP 2 ATP GLUCOSE OXIDIZED TO 2 PYRUVIC ACIDS 5 This occurs in the cytoplasm The pyruvic acid goes into the mitochondria where it is converted to the acetyl Coenzyme derivative and C02 As the 3 carbon acid with a keto group gets oxidized to a 2 carbon acid and carbon dioxide NAD gets reduced to NADHH Since there are 2 pyruvic acids for each starting glucose 2 NADHHs are formed giving 5 ATP OXIDATION OF PYRUVATE TO ACETYL CO A 5 Occurs in mitochondria 0 0 H3CCCOOH Coenzyme ASH NAD gt H3CCSCoA NADHH CO2 pyruvic acid acetyl CoA 2 NAD gt 2 NADHH 25 ATP 5 ATP

RNA or sRNA Semiconservative Replication MeselsonStahl Used heavy nitrogen in parent cell Next generation had 2 the heavy nitrogen Replication is bidirectional Each strand makes a copy It is synthesized from the 539 to 3 direction One chain is 5 gt3 and the other is 3 gt5 The 539 gt3 goes quickly This is the leading strand The lagging strand still synthesizes 539 gt339 direction It does it in sections called Okasaki fragments The pieces are pulled together by DNA polymerase Protein Synthesis The blue print of the cell is the DNA In the early experiments the scientists synthesized a poly uracil molecule When they placed the poly uracil in a tube of cell homogenate a poly phenylalanine peptide was isolated So UUU coded for phenylalanine The codon is the mRNA The portion ofthe DNA

radiation 4 Chemicals 5 Viruses Repair of Mutations Thyminethymine dimer or photoadduct are recoginzed by uvrABC ultraVioletlight repair system The dimer is cut out resulting in a gap lled by DNA polymerase and sealed with a ligase A segment of DNA is used to make a complementary copy of mRNA The segment has introns and exons Introns are the spaces of the DNA which are not needed The exons are the sections needed for the protein coding The uncut segment of RNA is called hrRNA heterogeneous nuclear RNA or ptRNA primary transcript RNA or primary transcript and sometimes premRNA premessenger RNA The strand of DNA which is copied is called the sense or coding strand The complementary strand is referred to as the antisense strand The genetic code is on the mRNA 3 bases code for 1 amino acid AUG is the starting base methionine The sequences signalling the end of synthesis are UAA UAG amp UGA mRNA is short lived it s destroyed as soon as its mission is completed Transfer RNA tRNA carries the corresponding amino acid over to the ribosomes on the endoplasmic reticulum Looks like a colverleaf with the amino acid attached at the 3 position The tRNA is specific for the individual amino acids The anticodon in the tRNA is important If an alanine tRNA were changed to have a cysteine in the place of alanine the tRNA would still line up where alanine should be The mRNA lines up on the ribosomes There is a 39p39 site and an a site Methionine sits on the 39p site and a tRNA with glycine goes to the a site The methionine residue moves to the glycine and attaches The methionineglycine then moves to the 39p39 site and a third amino acid sits on the a site How do genes get turned on In E Coli when lactose is present the enzyme Bgalactosidase is made in response to the lactose There is a structural gene which codes for the Bgalactosidase itself This gene is turned off when there is no lactose present There is an operator site where the repressor molecule sits Next to the operator site is a promoter site It holds in readiness RNA polymerase which is needed to transcribe the structural gene The repressor is a polypeptide made at the direction of its own gene a regulator gene located just above the promoter site When recptor molecules they bind to the DNA of the operator site This binding of the repressor is what prevents gene transcription and translation When lactose is present a modi cation of the lactose occurs and binds to the repressor which alters the shape of the repressor and the repressor comes off the DNA The system is now on Over 100000 human genes are in 46 chromosomes Scientists are mapping out which section codes what protein introns no information The same sections can be used for different coding depending on the introns sort of like skipping a

than 20 enzymes are needed Some genetic defects are due to a missing enzyme Albinism loss of one of the amino acid metabolising enzymes PKU loss of an enzyme which reacts with phenylalanine

correlation between high fat diets and heart disease Eskimo diets were very high in fat yet they had a low incidence heart attacks Eskimo diets had a ve fold excess of omega 3 fatty acids compared to

Very high concentrations in sh anchovies DHA DocosaHexanoic Acid 226 herring sardines fresh tuna whitefish Diets high in omega 3 fatty acids Normalized blood pressure Reduced triglycerides Slower progression of atherosclerosis Enhanced defenses against cancer Diets too high in omega 3 fatty acids Increased susceptibility to strokes to the same extent it reduces heart attacks Can precipitate vitamin E deficiency Trans Fatty Acids Trans refers to the spacial arrangement of the carbon atoms A trans configuration gives a kink in the molecule The trans formation is found in ruminant fat made by microorganisms in thr rumen The major source is due to an artifact in the hydrogenation of unsaturated fatty acids Trans fatty acids are metabolized like the saturated fatty acids It is though that the trans may antagonize the metabolism of the essential fattya cids and make the deficiency worse Trans raises the LDL cholesterol levels and lowers the HDL cholesterol levels has an increase in cancer On autopsy 15 of the fatty acids were found to be trans Prostanglandins C20 comes from arachidonic acid Put in where the double bonds would be if the prostaglandins come from arachidonic acid

other uses slows growth of some cancers treatment for Cushing syndrome too much cortisone Metabolism FATTY ACID OXIDATION Fatty acids serve as an energy reserve The fatty acids are broken down to acetyl CoA units A 16 carbon fatty acid would yield 8 Acetyl CoA s Each acetyl CoA unit would yield 10 ATP39s via the Krebs Cycle The fatty acid must be first activated This requires 2 ATP s In reality 1 ATP breaks down to AMP not ADP Two high energy bonds are used The breakdown of fatty acids beta oxidation occurs in the mitochondria The carbon 2 away from the COOH group gets oxidized This has 2 oxidation steps So we get 2 reductions FAD gt FADHH NAD gt NADHH For a 16 carbon we will have 7 FADHH s 7 NADHH s and 8 acetyl CoA39s Energy Tally O O CH3CH214COH gt 8 CH3COSCoA 7 NADH 7 FADH

an early enzyme is turned off by high cholesterol concentrations This is called Feed Back Inhibition The cholesterol molecule then serves to make the other steroids bile acids hormones etc The bile acids are reabsorbed from the gut and go to the liver Some cholesterol lowering drugs work by excreting the bile acids The bile acids then can t be recyled New cholesterol molecules would have to be converted to bile acids Why do you think dieting is also a part of lowering chlolesterol levels 6
