These reactions modify the chemicals you take in in your food and convert them into chemicals required to keep your A biochemistry ticking over. 6-Phospho-D-gluconate D-Ribose 5-phosphate Cytidine L-Tryptophan L-Noradrenaline D-Ribulose 5-phosphate Uridine L-Formylkynurenine Dopamine 3,4-Dihydroxy-L- phenylalanine D-Glucose l-phosphate- D-Glucono-1,5-lactone 6-phosphate L-Kynurenine Uracil All the reactions in a metabolic pathway are driven by enzymes. These are biological catalysts which drive reactions which would otherwise not happen. Enzymes also regulate metabolism and control which 3-Hydroxyanthranilate beta-D-Glucose 6-phosphate L-Tyrosine 3-Hydroxy-L-kynurenine - 5,6-Dihydrouracil 2-Amino-3-carboxymuconate semialdehyde 1-Aminomuconate semialdehyde L-Phenylalanine alpha-D-glucose 6-phosphate ( Guanine pathways are active at any particular - 3-Ureidopropionate time.

Metabolism is the complex network of chemical reactions that cells use to generate energy and all the chemicals they need to survive. Metabolism maps are normally extremely complex and scary-looking. ...
