Metabolism and Energies 2 Flashcards
The main purpose of the citric acid cycle is to
supply hydrogen atoms to the Electron Transport System.
The end products of aerobic respiration are
carbon dioxide, water, ATP
Most of the ATP from metabolism is produced in the
electron transport system (ETS)
In the citric acid cycle, a 2 carbon molecule and a 4 carbon molecule combine to produce
The end products of glycolysis are
ATP, NADH, and pyruvic acid
The essential fatty acids are
linoleic acid and linolenic acid
The lipoproteins that carry absorbed lipids from the intestinal tract to the bloodstream are
triglycerides are broken down into glycerol and fatty acids.
provide energy for cells with modest energy demands
Lipogenesis generally begins with
Linoleic acid and linolenic acid are examples of
essential fatty acids
In order to determine the LDL level in a patient's blood, it is necessary to measure
total cholesterol level, HDL level, and triglyceride level
______ are the largest lipoproteins, ranging in diameter up to 0.5um, produced by intestinal epithelial cells from the fats in foods.
