Sort When body temperature increases above the normal range, thermoreceptors in the skin and hypothalamus detect the increase in body temperature. The heat-loss center of the hypothalamus is activated, which sends signals to blood vessels and sweat glands. In response, blood vessels in the skin dilate and sweat glands release sweat. Determine the part of this negative feedback loop that serves as the effector(s). blood vessels and sweat glands Which statement is TRUE regarding complete proteins? a. Complete proteins can only be obtained from animal proteins. b. Complete proteins provide all of the essential amino acids. c. Complete proteins can be synthesized from carbon skeletons. d. Complete proteins lack one or more essential amino acids. b. Complete proteins provide all of the essential amino acids. Continue reading >>

    Triacylglycerol vs. Glucose

    Can somebody provide an explanation of why Triacylglycerols provide more ATP per carbon when fully oxidized to ATP than does Glucose. I'm thinking along the lines of B-Oxidation and such but I'm not too sure how the numbers work out. Thanks a lot!

  2. BloodySurgeon

    In order for a n-carbon fatty acid to be completely oxidized, (n/2)-1 turns of B-oxidation cycles must be completed, which produces (n/2)-1 FADH2, (n/2)-1 NADH, and n/2 acetyl-CoA. Each acetyle-CoA then goes through the citric acid cycle and produces the same amount of ATP as half a glucose. So as long as a fatty acid is 4 carbons or longer, it will produce more ATP than glucose.
    Also remember a triglyceride has three fatty acid chains and have chains usually around 16 carbons long in humans. So if you do the math, there are usually around 9x more ATP in triglycerides.

  3. BloodySurgeon

    This of course is unless information for the mcat... all you need to know is that triglycerides have more energy, but ATP are more usable energy sources by breaking the high energy phosphate bonds.

  • Amino Acids Can Be Used By The Body To Make Glucose And Fatty Acids True Or False

    Metabolism is the sum of all the chemical and physical processes by which the body breaks down and builds up molecules. All forms of life maintain a balance between anabolic and catabolic reactions, which determines if the body achieves growth and repair or if it persists in a state of loss. Metabolic pathways are clusters of chemical reactions that occur sequentially and achieve a particular goal, such as the breakdown of glucose for energy. The ...

  • Postprandial Plasma Glucose Level Less Than The Fasting Level

    Abstract Blood glucose estimation is the most common investigation in the medical practice in all disciplines. Altered values of blood glucose are very common in laboratory but here we are reporting the fasting blood glucose (FBG) more than the post prandial blood glucose(PPBG).This type of results are confusing for the consultants to make relevant diagnosis and treatment. Blood glucose estimation was done using Glucose oxidase method and tabulat ...
