Energy & Metabolism-Part I (Chapters 6&9)

Life as we know it would not exist without energy. Energy, in the form of sunlight, drives nearly all biological processes on earth. The movement of energy within and between living organisms is the key to life. The movement of energy through biochemical pathways is known as metabolism. Metabolism is mediated through the use of enzymes which are biological catalysts. This unit examines the chemistry of enzymes. One of the most important series of metabolic pathways in all living things is fully explored- the pathways associated with cellular respiration.
