Sample text

In every metabolic pathway, at least one reaction is essentially irreversible, exergonic, and enzyme limited. That is, the rate of the reaction is limited only by the activity of the enzyme catalyzing it. Such enzymes are frequently the regulatory enzymes, capable of being stimulated or suppressed by one of the mechanisms described. Logically, an enzyme catalyzing a reaction reversibly at near equilibrium in the cell cannot be regulatory, because its up or down regulation would affect its forward and reverse activities equally.

Lysosomal phagocytosis protects against invading bacteria and is part of the normal repair process following a wound or an infection. A second catabolic activity of lysosomes is autolysis, in which intracellular components, including organelles, are digested following degeneration or cellular injury. Autolysis also can serve as a survival mechanism for the cell as a whole. Digesting dispensable intracellular components can provide the cell with nutrients necessary to fuel functions essential to life.

A single hormone-binding site can produce many cAMP molecules. The mechanism of action of cAMP signaling within the cell is complex, but it can be viewed briefly as follows: cAMP is an activator of protein kinases. Protein kinases are enzymes that phosphorylate (add phosphate groups to) Receptors can also act as ion channels in stimulating a cell. In some cases, the binding of the ligand to its receptor causes a voltage change, which then becomes the signal for an appropriate cellular response.
