Cell Metabolism

We all use energy to survive. Metabolism is the total of all the chemical reactions an organism needs to survive, either plant or animal. Photosynthesis and glycolysis are necessary to life. These are intertwined with each other. There are a number of cycles involved, the basic one is the carbon cycle. There are also smaller cycles within the larger cycle.

What is the primary energy molecule in living things?

ATP also called adenosine triphosphate.

It is based around the same nitrogenous base as the DNA and RNA adenine nucleotide is, except it is not attached to a sugar and has three phosphate groups instead of the one phosphate group that the adenine nucleotide has.

Does lack of oxygen kill cells?

Not necessarily.

  1. for anaerobic cells it actually increases their growth rate, as oxygen is toxic to them
  2. for aerobic cells they can usually fallback on anaerobic fermentation for a short period of time, but yes sustained lack of oxygen will eventually kill them

How many ATP molecules need to be converted to ADP to link two glucose molecules?

None. Here we are talking of the synthesis of disaccharides. The biological mechanism entails the reaction known as "condensation", where two monosaccharide molecules, as glucose, join together to form a disaccharide. Condensation reaction involves the loss of a water molecule per two monosaccharides in a chemical reaction. Two OH groups, one from each sugar molecule, come together to release a water molecule and form an oxygen bridge between sugar molecules. One of the OH groups is attached to the anomeric carbon (the carbon that has 2 oxygens bonded to it).

How does food provide a soucre of energy of living things?

The source of all your cells needs for living is found in food. The most common source is sugars, mainly glucose. Glucose is the starting point for all metabolism.

What cell organelle is associated with the production of chemical energy?

In eukaryotic cells the mitochondria extract energy from glucose using it to make ATP, which the other parts of the cell use as their energy source.
