You also have the water involved. So carbohydrates, these are either simple sugars like glucose or fructose, or it could be polymers of these sugars, polysaccharides. Anabolism and catabolism. So we really are made up of the remnants of stars.
And you might be saying, "What are these types of molecules "that we keep breaking down "and then building back up? This is the sun. What are the factors that affect the rate of photosynthesis?
Introduction to metabolism review. What are the uses of Glucose in animals and humans? I'll just draw them as these little... And this is the taking energy in different forms, breaking it down into its more fundamental components, and then building it up in ways that we would find useful, useful for energy, useful for structure, so that we can actually live our lives, we can grow, we can reproduce, we can respond to our surroundings.
Overview of metabolism. So fatty acids, we could be talking about cholesterols.
There are some bacteria and things that are able to live off of vents at the bottom of the ocean because of the heat created, but the sun is our primary source of energy. So this is the breaking down of things and then once we've broken down things, we're ready to rebuild them in ways that we would find useful, and we call this anabolism. But when I say that other stars might have been involved, including dead stars that existed billions of years ago, it's because the heavier elements that we're composed of, or that are around us in the environment, the carbon, the oxygen, we could just keep going, pretty much everything other than hydrogen, it was constructed in fusion reactions from hydrogen inside of stars.
Enzymes play important roles in all living organisms. The sun is our most direct source of energy for most of life as we know it. The most common incorrect exam answer is water. And one way to think about it is imagine that someone had built something with Legos and you want to build something with Legos.
We will first catabolize them and break them down and then we will use those building blocks to build it back up. Introduction to metabolism. Introduction to metabolism: You will look at respiration in the context of exercise and how the human body responds to different intensities of exercise and how this impacts on the use of glucose.
And just a reminder, you know, that photosynthesis, it isn't just light and it isn't just the carbon dioxide. Frankly, all of them on the back of nutritional package because it tells you what's inside of it.
And so what this cow is doing, it's metabolizing this grass.
