Metabolism general concepts: Energy and central role of ATP in biological systems, coupled reactions.
Catalysis and regulation of biochemical pathways: Enzymes, coenzymes, enzyme kinetics, regulation of enzyme activity.
The central energy pathway: citric acid cycle, oxidative phosphorilation.
Carbohydrate metabolism: glycolysis, pentose phosphate pathway, gluconeogenesys, glycogen
Lipid metabolism: lipid transport, fatty acid breakdown and synthesis, triacylglycerol and cholesterol synthesis, the ketone bodies, the rumen volatile fatty acids
Aminoacid metabolism: protein turnover, aminotransferases, the Urea cycle, the aminoacid catabolism.
Signal transduction and metabolic regulation.
