Metabolic Intergration Notes

This is a sample of our (approximately) 4 page long Metabolic Intergration notes, which we sell as part of the Biochemistry Notes collection, a First package written at Oxford in 2014 that contains (approximately) 216 pages of notes across 33 different documents.

Metabolic Intergration Revision

The following is a plain text extract of the PDF sample above, taken from our Biochemistry Notes. This text version has had its formatting removed so pay attention to its contents alone rather than its presentation. The version you download will have its original formatting intact and so will be much prettier to look at.

METABOLIC INTERGRATION Substrate utilisation... Fatty acids
-Skeletal muscle (especially type 1-highly aerobic)
-Renal cortex Glucose
-Red blood cells (no mitochondria)
-Renal medulla (poor circulation-hypoxic)
-Skeletal muscle (especially type 2 fibres) Amino acids
-Liver (all exept leucine, isolecuine, valine)
-Gut - glutamine, glutamate, aspartate
-Renal cortex- Glutamine
-Muscle- Leucine, isoleucine, valine Inter-organ relationships... Muscle-liver cycle CORI CYCLE: Lactate is produced during anaerobic respiration and is transported into the liver where it is converted into glucose and allows further oxidiation to continue
-alanine and glutamine are released from skeletal muscle during amino acid metabolism. These are gluconeogenic precursors and are transported to the liver where they are converted into glucose b) Fatty acid metabolism
-Dietary fat absorbed from enterocytes are converted into chylomicrons which are transported as triglycerides to the adipose tissue. Lipoprotein lipase breaks down the Triglyceride into fatty acids which is then stored as triglyceride in adipose tissue
