Study guide
What is a metabolic pathway?
Why do cells need enzymes?
Will a lipase enzyme break down proteins? Why or why not?
Draw a picture labeling an enzyme. Labels: enzyme, substrate, Co-enzyme, enzyme substrate complex,
products, label whether it is a catabolic or anabolic reaction.
Describe your drawing using complete sentences using the same labels/words to describe as above.
What is an apoenzyme? Describe the components.
Why are coenzymes important?
What are the different factors that affect enzyme activity?
What is happening when an enzyme denatures?
Describe allosteric regulation.
Describe feedback inhibition.
Compare and contrast competitive and non-competitive inhibitors.
How are catabolic and anabolic reactions different?
Describe the role of ATP in a cell.
What is the difference between oxidative and substrate level phosphorylation?
Describe Oxidation and Reduction:
What is the role of electron carriers in a cell?
Carbohydrate catabolism
List the 4 key metabolic pathways that are used by bacteria to break down glucose.
Summarize what is happening to glucose when catabolized.
