Carbohydrate Metabolism

Carbohydrate Metabolism

by Kevin Ahern, PhD

In this course, Dr. Kevin Ahern will guide you through the complex process of carbohydrate metabolism. He will comprehensively cover the step-by-step reactions of various metabolic pathways, including:

  • Glycolysis
  • Pyruvate metabolism
  • Gluconeogenesis
  • Glycogen metabolism
  • Pentose phosphate pathway
  • Citric acid cycle

The course assists your long term mastery of the subject and exam performance with quiz questions that are fed into a spaced retrieval algorithm. High-yield clinical pearls and mnemonics are provided to further support your learning process.

Its excellent because there is more physical and clinical correlation and enzyme mechanism simplified

Mineral Metabolism
By Jay V. on 13. February 2021 for Carbohydrate Metabolism

I noticed that there weren't any lectures on mineral metabolism in the library. I think students would really appreciate it if you made a module on this topic as it has a lot of biomedical importance and some relevant diseases are associated with it.

Comprehensive and all aspects are covered
By Sana K. on 31. January 2021 for Carbohydrate Metabolism

Each and every concept is explained with each lecture it has helped me in getting to know things well rather than just learning.

Thanks for pointing out other interesting details about this step, not always emphasized by other glycolysis overviews
By Kelvin L. on 18. January 2021 for Glycolysis: 3-PG –> 2-PG – Glycolysis and Pyruvate Metabolism

Dr. Ahern pointed out very interesting aspects like heat generation/high energy of PEP and the 2,3-BPG production. Maybe I wasn't paying attention the first time I learned about glycolysis, but this extra integrative information it makes this step easier to remember. Actually, in generally, these human focused biochemistry lectures, are easier to digest, since when I learned it originally, it was mixed with plant and microbial biochem.
