Learning all the biochemistry pathways is one major pain in the katookus! Each article contains a relevant discussion of a particular biochemical topic and a brief overview of its relevance in disease. If there is a something you'd like us to write about shoot us an email.
Topics are arranged alphabetically
- Electron Transport Chain - This article discusses where all the magic happens in biochemistry and how the cell produces most of its ATP (the fuel for a cell) via a process known as oxidative phosphorylation.
- Glycolysis - Glycolysis is one of the most important biochemical pathways in the human body. Learn about how glucose, a simple sugar, gets turned into fuel. Learn what type of energy is produced and how this pathway is controlled.
- Krebs Cycle (aka: citric acid cycle) - The Krebs cycle (aka: citric acid cycle) takes intermediates from many other biochemical pathways and breaks them down to form energy rich molecules. Learn about how it is regulated.
