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.

It's fine
By Ramsey H. on 16. September 2020 for Carbohydrate Metabolism

It's good, informative not as detailed as I need it to be but it's a good framework to build on

Very well explained
By Maria O. on 10. August 2020 for Glycolysis: Glucose –> G6-P –> F6-P – Glycolysis and Pyruvate Metabolism

This lecture is amazing and I loved the explanation regarding the conformational change of hexocinase during the reaction.

I love Glucose
