...Adenosine Triphosphate) Biologists consider adenosine triphosphate (ATP) as a high energy molecule that is the energy currency of life, which stores energy needed for all the body functions of a living organism. Physiological mechanisms use stored ATP like batteries that aids to provide energy. Oxidation of glucose operates to provide energy conversion of adenosine diphosphate to adenosine triphosphate during metabolism (“Adenosine Triphosphate,” n.d.).

However, this process sometimes fails to take place in the mitochondria, and hence there is inefficient energy in the organism. In the citric acid cycle, a hypothetical defect is likely to take place that prevents generation of ATP. This defect may take place during conversion of isocitrate to ketoglutarate. The conversion is enhanced by Isocitrate dehydrogenase. IDH is usually... ? Biochemistry Task 4 al Affiliation Biochemistry Task 4 Case Explain how enzymes are ...

Metabolic Changes Physical exercises, whether high-intensity or low intensity, affect the metabolic system of an individual. In line with this, metabolic changes take place in order to accommodate the demands of the body during exercises. While doing this, there are metabolic requirements that a body should have in order to ensure the achievement of effective results. This expose is an elucidation of all the changes that take place in the body’s metabolism processes during physical exercises. First, the expose...

...adenosine triphosphate (ATP) molecules... With reference to negative feedback loops explore the role of the pancreas in glycaemic homeostasis. Introduction Glucose is a central metabolic energy source for humans with its management at appropriate intensities within the body being paramount to the regular functioning of the body cells, whereas its dysregulation (disruption of homeostasis) is associated with potential life-threatening disorders such as galactosemia and diabetes mellitus. The maintenance of steady blood glucose is decisive to the overall health of cells; consequently, the wellbeing of the entire body. Glucose molecules are mainly broken down within body cells so as to produce adenosine tr...
