Biology Lecture Notes Chapter 6 The Energy of Life ● The living cell is a miniature chemical factory where thousands of reactions occur. ● The cell extracts energy and applies energy to perform work. An Organism’s Metabolism Transforms Matter and Energy ● Metabolism is the totality of an organism's chemical reactions. ● Metabolism is an emergent property of life that arises from interactions between molecules within the cell. Metabolic Pathway A metabolic pathway begins with a specific molecule and ends with a product. ● Each step is catalyzed by a specific enzyme. ● Catabolic pathways release energy by breaking down complex molecules into simpler compounds. ● One example of catabolism is cellula
