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.

So good explications with a nice and simple way . I really appreciate your effort .

Delivers needed information about metabolism of Galactose
By Mohammed A. on 22. October 2020 for Gluconeogenesis: Metabolism of Galactose

It's unfathomable how much this lecture has saved my time. Though I would appreciate a quick-summary of the products turning into intermediates for other cycles. Like with how g-1-p turns into g-6-p

Delivers the needed information for glycogenesis.
By Mohammed A. on 22. October 2020 for Glycogen Metabolism: Glycogen Synthesis

The lecture simplified glycogenesis to extreme simplicity. It truly helped save around 30 minutes from my lecture, by providing adequate information
