Metabolism

Prof. Graham Walker from MIT explains in this video below the metabolism of glucose in a living cell. He starts off by explaining how glucose molecules gets converted to pyruvate in 10 enzymatic steps, including the production of 2 ATP and 2 NADH (electron currency of a cell), in a process called glycolysis. The Pyruvate then migrates to the mitochondrion to produce acetyl-CoA and eventually to CO2 … Continue reading Metabolism
