Students Will Review:

This chapter helps students review the concepts in a metabolic reactions unit of a cellular respiration course. Topics covered include:

  • Anabolism and catabolism
  • Redox reactions and electron carriers
  • Coenzymes, cofactors and prosthetic groups
  • Substrate-level phosphorylation and oxidative phosphorylation
  • Synthesis of ATP in muscle tissue

Test your knowledge with a 30-question chapter practice test
Anabolism and Catabolism: Definitions & Examples

1. Anabolism and Catabolism: Definitions & Examples

Metabolism breaks down large molecules like food into usable energy. This energy drives bodily processes critical to survival. In this video lesson, you will learn about the two forms of metabolism that break down and build up molecules and see examples of each.

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.

Coenzymes, Cofactors & Prosthetic Groups: Function and Interactions

3. Coenzymes, Cofactors & Prosthetic Groups: Function and Interactions

Some enzymes require helpers to recognize a substrate or complete a reaction. These helpers include cofactors, coenzymes, and prosthetic groups, which are required for some enzymes' functions.

Substrate-level Phosphorylation and Oxidative Phosphorylation

4. Substrate-level Phosphorylation and Oxidative Phosphorylation

Your body is always using energy. This energy, in the form of ATP, is generated within your cells through substrate-level phosphorylation or oxidative phosphorylation. Learn about these processes and the role mitochondria play in making energy.

Muscle Metabolism: Synthesis of ATP

5. Muscle Metabolism: Synthesis of ATP

Did you know our muscles use billions of molecules every second to contract? This lesson describes the different metabolic processes by which ATP is generated by the muscle cell. Examples are utilized to define glycolysis, the citric acid cycle and oxidative phosphorylation.
