Ch 10: Metabolic Biochemistry: Help and Review

About This Chapter

The Metabolic Biochemistry chapter of this College Biology Help and Review course is the simplest way to master metabolic biochemistry. This chapter uses simple and fun videos that are about five minutes long, plus lesson quizzes and a chapter exam to ensure students learn the essentials of metabolic biochemistry.

Who's it for?

Anyone who needs help learning or mastering college biology material will benefit from taking this course. There is no faster or easier way to learn college biology. Among those who would benefit are:

  • Students who have fallen behind in understanding cellular respiration or photosynthesis
  • Students who struggle with learning disabilities or learning differences, including autism and ADHD
  • Students who prefer multiple ways of learning science (visual or auditory)
  • Students who have missed class time and need to catch up
  • Students who need an efficient way to learn about metabolic biochemistry
  • Students who struggle to understand their teachers
  • Students who attend schools without extra science learning resources

How it works:

  • Find videos in our course that cover what you need to learn or review.
  • Press play and watch the video lesson.
  • Refer to the video transcripts to reinforce your learning.
  • Test your understanding of each lesson with short quizzes.
  • Verify you're ready by completing the Metabolic Biochemistry chapter exam.

Why it works:

  • Study Efficiently: Skip what you know, review what you don't.
  • Retain What You Learn: Engaging animations and real-life examples make topics easy to grasp.
  • Be Ready on Test Day: Use the Metabolic Biochemistry chapter exam to be prepared.
  • Get Extra Support: Ask our subject-matter experts any metabolic biochemistry question. They're here to help!
  • Study With Flexibility: Watch videos on any web-ready device.

Students will review:

In this chapter, you'll find answers to questions including:

  • How do oxidation-reduction reactions occur in cellular respiration?
  • What steps are found in the glycolysis pathway?
  • How do chemical reactions occur during the Krebs cycle?
  • What steps take place in the electron transport chain?
  • How does lactic acid fermentation occur?

11 Lessons in Chapter 10: Metabolic Biochemistry: Help and Review
Cellular Respiration: Energy Transfer in Cells

1. Cellular Respiration: Energy Transfer in Cells

Watch this short video to learn the basics about converting organic compounds into ATP, also known as cellular respiration. We'll look at an overview of the process.

Redox Reactions & Electron Carriers in Cellular Respiration: Definitions and Examples

2. Redox Reactions & Electron Carriers in Cellular Respiration: Definitions and Examples

Redox reactions play an important role in cellular respiration. In this lesson, you will see how NAD and FAD are used as electron carriers to temporarily store energy during cellular respiration.

Glycolysis Pathway: Steps, Products & Importance

3. Glycolysis Pathway: Steps, Products & Importance

Cellular respiration creates chemical energy in the form of ATP from the food we eat and the air we breathe. In this lesson, we'll learn about the first part of this process, glycolysis.

The Citric Acid (Krebs) Cycle: Products and Steps

4. The Citric Acid (Krebs) Cycle: Products and Steps

In this lesson, we return to the process of cellular respiration for the second act of creating energy from food. In this act, products from glycolysis feed into the next stage, the citric acid cycle.

The Electron Transport Chain: Products and Steps

5. The Electron Transport Chain: Products and Steps

In this lesson, we'll learn about the finale of cellular respiration. The electron transport chain uses products from the first two acts of glycolysis and the citric acid cycle to complete the chemical reaction that turns our food into usable cellular energy.

Lactic Acid & Alcoholic Fermentation: Comparison, Contrast & Examples

6. Lactic Acid & Alcoholic Fermentation: Comparison, Contrast & Examples

When in an anaerobic environment, some cells can use glycolysis and fermentation to keep producing ATP. Lactic acid fermentation happens in our muscle cells when we are exercising feverishly, while alcoholic fermentation is used in yeast cells and is what leads to beer, bread, and wine.

Chlorophyll: Absorbing Light Energy for Photosynthesis

7. Chlorophyll: Absorbing Light Energy for Photosynthesis

Plants are clean, green, photosynthesizing machines. Using a specialized pigment called chlorophyll, plants are able to soak up energy from the sun and turn it into food. In this lesson, we'll start to learn why chlorophyll literally gets excited about a sunny day!

Photolysis and the Light Reactions: Definitions, Steps, Reactants & Products

8. Photolysis and the Light Reactions: Definitions, Steps, Reactants & Products

In this lesson, we'll learn how electrons get excited during the light-dependent reactions of photosynthesis, jumping off photosystem reaction centers like they were trampolines! In addition, we'll learn how the splitting of water creates reactants for this part of photosynthesis while creating a little fresh air for us.

Dark Reactions of Photosynthesis: The Calvin-Benson Cycle

9. Dark Reactions of Photosynthesis: The Calvin-Benson Cycle

Photosynthesis starts out using the energy from sunlight to get things started, but it ends with the dark reactions, which don't need sunshine to complete sugar production. In the Calvin cycle, ATP and NADPH from the light reactions are used to produce sugars.

Beta Oxidation: Definition & Steps

10. Beta Oxidation: Definition & Steps

In this lesson, you'll discover what beta oxidation is and what it is used for. You'll also learn a little bit about fatty acids and the steps involved in their breakdown.

What are Thyroid Peroxidase (tpo) Antibodies?

11. What are Thyroid Peroxidase (tpo) Antibodies?

In this lesson you will discover what thyroid peroxidase (TPO) antibodies are and what can be learned from them. You will also learn some about the role of thyroid peroxidase in the body.
