1 Chapter 8 Metabolism Chapter Outline I. Energy: Fuel for Work. *Energy is necessary to do any kind of work. The body converts chemical energy from food sources carbohydrates, proteins, and fats into a form usable by cells. A. Transferring food energy to cellular energy (Figure 8.2) B. What is metabolism (Figure 8.3)? *Anabolic reactions (anabolism) build compounds. These reactions require energy. Catabolic reactions (catabolism) break compounds into smaller units. These reactions produce the energy. C. The cell is the metabolic processing center (Figure 8.4) Key terms: metabolism chemical energy, photosynthesis, metabolite, metabolic pathway, catabolism, anabolism, cell, nucleus, cytoplasm, cytosol, organelle, mitochondria, cofactor, coenzyme II. Who Are the Key Energy Players? A. ATP: The Body s Energy Currency (Figure 8.5). *Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is the energy currency of the body. B. NADH and FADH 2 : The Body s Energy Shuttles. *The body s energy shuttles NADH, FADH 2, and NADPH are important carriers of hydrogen and high-energy electrons. NADH and FADH 2 are used in making ATP, while NADPH is used in biosynthetic reactions. C. NADPH: An Energy Shuttle for Biosynthesis Key terms: ATP, NADH, FADH 2, NADPH, biosynthesis, ADP, pyrophosphate, AMP, GTP, NAD, hydrogen ion, FAD III. Breakdown and Release of Energy. *Cells extract energy from carbohydrate via four main pathways: glycolysis, pyruvate into acetyl CoA, the citric acid cycle, and the electron transport chain. A. Extracting Energy from Carbohydrate (Table 8.1). *The citric acid cycle and electron transport chain require oxygen. Glycolysis does not. 1. Glycolysis 2. Conversion of pyruvate to acetyl CoA 3. Citric acid cycle 4. Electron transport chain. The electron transport chain produces more ATP than the other catabolic pathways. 5. End products of glucose catabolism B. Extracting energy from fat. *To extract energy from fat, first triglycerides are separated into glycerol and fatty acids. Next, beta-oxidation breaks down the fatty acids to yield acetyl CoA, NADH, and FADH 2. The acetyl CoA enters the citric acid cycle, producing more NADH and FADH 2. The NADH and FADH 2 deliver their high-energy electrons to the electron transport chain to make ATP. 1. Carnitine shuttle 2. Beta-oxidation (Figure 8.14)

2 3. The citric acid cycle and electron transport chain complete fatty acid breakdown (Figure 8.15) C. Fat burns in a flame of carbohydrate D. Extracting energy from protein 1. Carbon skeletons enter pathways at different points. *To extract energy from amino acids, first it is deaminated (the amino acid is removed). Depending on the structure of the remaining carbon skeleton, it enters the catabolic pathways as pyruvate, acetyl CoA, or a citric acid cycle intermediate. The citric acid cycle and the electron transport chain complete the production of ATP. 2. End products of amino acid catabolism. *The liver converts the nitrogen portion of amino acids to urea, which the kidney excretes. Key terms: glycolysis, anaerobic, pyruvate, aerobic, acetyl CoA, coenzyme A, lactate, citric acid cycle, oxaloacetate, Krebs cycle, tricarboxylic acid cycle, electron transport chain, mitochondrial membrane, oxidative phosphorylation, carnitine, beta-oxidation, deamination IV. Alcohol Metabolism A. Metabolizing small amounts of alcohol (Figure 8.18) B. Metabolizing large amounts of alcohol (Figure 8.19) Key terms: alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH), aldehyde dehydrogenase (ALDH), microsomal ethanol-oxidizing system (MEOS) V. Biosynthesis and Storage (Figure 8.20). *Tissues differ in their preferred source of fuel. The brain, nervous system, and red blood cells rely primarily on glucose, while other tissues use a mix of glucose, fatty acids, and ketone bodies as fuel sources. A. Making carbohydrate (glucose). *When carbohydrate is available, glucose can be stored as glycogen in liver and muscle tissue. 1. Gluconeogenesis: pathways to glucose (Figure 8.21). *Glucose can be produced from the noncarbohydrate precursors glycerol and some (glucogenic) amino acids, but not from fatty acids. 2. Storage: Glucose to Glycogen B. Making fat (fatty acids) 1. Lipogenesis: pathways to fatty acids 2. Storage: dietary energy to stored triglyceride (Table 8.3) C. Making ketone bodies (Figure 7.20) 1. Ketogenesis: pathways to ketone bodies D. Making protein (amino acids) 1. Biosynthesis: making amino acids Key terms: gluconeogenesis, glycogenesis, glycogenolysis, lipogenesis, ketones, ketogenesis, ketoacidosis, transamination V. Regulation of Metabolism. *The hormone insulin regulates metabolism by favoring anabolic pathways. It promotes the uptake of glucose by cells, thus removing it from the bloodstream. Glucagon, cortisol, and epinephrine stimulate catabolic pathways. These hormones promote the breakdown of glycogen to glucose and of amino acids to make

3 glucose via gluconeogenesis. The breakdown of liver glycogen increases the amount of glucose in the blood. A. Hormones of metabolism B. Special states 1. Feasting (Figure 8.24). *Feasting, or overconsumption of energy, leads to glycogen and triglyceride storage. a. The return to normal 2. Fasting (Figure 8.25). *Fasting, or underconsumption of energy, leads to mobilization of liver glycogen and stored triglycerides. Starvation, the state of prolonged fasting, leads to protein breakdown as well and can be fatal. a. Survival priorities and potential energy sources b. The prolonged fast: in the beginning c. The first few days (Figure 8.26) d. The early weeks e. Several weeks of fasting f. The end is near Classroom Activities ACTIVITY 1: TRIVIA See Activity 1 in Chapter 1 for an explanation on implementing trivia exercises into your classroom.
