Metabolism general concepts: energy in biological systems and the role of ATP, coupled reactions; metabolic pathways.
Catalysis and control of biochemical reactions: enzymes, enzyme kinetics, enzyme regulation, coenzymes and vitamins.
The central energy way: the citric acid cycle, electron transport and oxidative phosphorylation.
Carbohydrate metabolism: glycolysis, the yield of respiration, gluconeogenesis, glycogen and carbohydrate storage.
Lipid metabolism: Use and transport of fats and cholesterol, Oxidation and biosynthesis of fatty acids, triacylglycerol biosynthesis, cholesterol biosynthesis, ketone bodies, biosynthesis of volatile fatty acids in the rumen.
Amino acid metabolism: digestion of proteins; aminotransferase and transport of the amino group to the liver; production and excretion of urea, catabolism of the carbon skeleton of amino acids.
Signal transduction and metabolic regulation
