Citric Acid Cycle- Description, Reactants, End Products, and ATP

Citric Acid Cycle- Description, Reactants, End Products, and ATP

The Citric Acid Cycle is a major metabolic pathway found in both plants and animals. The cycle produces ATP, the body’s cellular energy currency, and other small molecules that are either used for biosynthesis or to regulate metabolism. This article will describe what the Citric Acid Cycle is, how it works, its reactants and products…

Krebs Cycle – What it is and End Products

Krebs Cycle – What it is and End Products

The citric acid cycle, also known as the Krebs cycle or citric acid cycle (CAC), is an eight-step enzymatic pathway in the mitochondria matrix. Its purpose is to oxidize acetate, alpha-ketoglutarate and malate into carbon dioxide and water for energy while converting NADH into NAD+…This blog post will explore what the Krebs cycle is, what it does to our bodies, and how we can use this information for better health….

Hydroxyl Functional Group Properties and Structures

Hydroxyl Functional Group Properties and Structures

The hydroxyl functional group is the simplest of all the common organic functional groups. It consists of a hydrogen atom attached to an oxygen atom. It has two chemical properties: acidity, measured by its pK value, and nucleophilicity, or how reactive it is with other molecules. This post will focus on the properties and structures associated with this simple but essential part of biochemistry…

Cytosol definition, structure, and functions

Cytosol definition, structure, and functions

Cytosol is a liquid that fills the cell, and it’s also known as the cytoplasm, even though both terms aren’t used interchangeably. When we talk about cells, we often think of this liquid as watery. However, this fluid has many other components like protein molecules, lipids (fats), metabolites, and ions. This blog post discusses what cytosols are made up of and how their composition changes depending on where they’re found!…

Cartilage- Definitions, functions, structure, and characteristics

Cartilage- Definitions, functions, structure, and characteristics

Cartilage is a type of connective tissue that is found throughout the body, from the nose to the ends of our fingers. Cartilage can be rigid and stiff or soft and flexible depending on its location in the body. This article will examine cartilage definitions, structure, functions, and characteristics to help you better understand how it works!…
