Review the basics of chemistry you'll need to know to study
Molecules Learn about structures and properties of sugars,
lipids, amino acids, and nucleotides, as well as macromolecules
including proteins, nucleic acids and polysaccharides.
Chemistry of Amino Acids learn the structure and chemistry
of the amino acids that are found within proteins.
Bases Learn about the solvent properties of water, pH, pKa
and buffering capacity.
Correlates of pH Levels Learn how metabolic acidosis or
alkalosis can arise and how these conditions shift the bicarbonate
equilibrium. The body's compensatory mechanisms and treatment
options are also discussed.
Learn which biological reactions require either B12 or folate
(or both); what the consequences of a deficiency in either vitamin
are, and the important step in which B12 and folate metabolism
Enzymes, and Catalysis Familiarize yourself
with some key principles about enzymes, catalysis, and energy
that are central to a subsequent study of metabolic pathways.
Develop a basic understanding of some of the fundamental concepts
Carbohydrate Metabolism Regulation Learn about the regulation
of carbohydrate metabolism by insulin, glucagon and epinephrine,
mainly in liver and muscle.
1 Study the conversion of light energy into different forms
of chemical energy during photosynthesis.
2 Review the location and overall reactions of carbohydrate
biosynthesis during photosynthesis, and understand the metabolic
differences between C3 and C4 plants
provided by the National Center for Biotechnology Information,
is a thorough WWW resource worth exploring.
Mad. This website is mainly aimed for students studying
AQA (spec. A) Biology in the UK. It is informative, beautifully
designed and easy to use.
