In the intricate symphony of cellular processes, glucose stands as the maestro, providing energy for a diverse array of cellular operations. However, when blood glucose levels plummet, a backup plan kicks in, ensuring that energy demands are met. This remarkable process is known as gluconeogenesis. A Journey from Non-Carbohydrates to Glucose Gluconeogenesis revolves around the […]
Phosphorylation: The Powerhouse of Cellular Energy In the bustling world of cells, energy is the driving force behind every process, from building proteins to transporting nutrients. And one of the most crucial players in this energy-generating game is phosphorylation. What is Phosphorylation? Phosphorylation is the process of adding a phosphate group (PO43-) to a molecule.
Electron Transport Chain (ETC): A Powerhouse for Cellular Energy In the bustling world of cells, energy is the lifeblood that drives every process, from building proteins to transporting nutrients. And one of the most crucial players in this energy-generating game is the Electron Transport Chain (ETC). Imagine the ETC as a miniature power plant within
TCA cycle: This pathway oxidizes pyruvate to produce carbon dioxide, energy in the form of ATP, and reduced coenzymes (NADH and FADH2)
TCA Cycle :- The citric acid cycle, also known as the Krebs cycle or the tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle, is a series of chemical reactions that occurs in the mitochondria of eukaryotic cells and in the cytosol of prokaryotic cells. The TCA cycle is a major pathway of aerobic respiration, which is the process by
1 PARAMETERS OF BIOLOGICAL INDICATORS FOR HEAT STERILISATION 1-1 z-Value Sterilisation processes can be operated at temperatures lower than the standard 121 °C (for longer exposure times) or at higher temperatures (for shorter exposure times). The z-value (the temperature difference that leads to a 10-fold change in the D-value of the biological indicator) is used to compare the efficacy
Glycolysis Introduction, Pathway , Diagram & Summary The Embden-Meyerhof pathway or Glycolysis.. Microorganisms employ several metabolic pathways to catabolize glucose and other sugars.➡️Energy-requiring phase:During the energy-requiring phase of glycolysis. Two ATP are spent to form an unstable sugar with two phosphate groups, which then splits to form 2 three-carbon molecules that are isomers of each
