Metabolism by Mind Map: Metabolism

1. Catabolism

1.1. Hydrolysis, break down macromolecule into molecules

2. Anabolism

2.1. Condensation reaction, synthesize molecules into macromolecule

3. Enzyme inhibition

3.1. Competitive inhibition

3.1.1. A molecule that is similar to the substrate, which it could bind to the active site.

3.1.1.1. Then it will decrease the enzyme activity

3.2. Non-competitive inhibiton

3.2.1. An inhibitor that can bind to an enzyme, that cause a conformational change in the active site.

3.2.1.1. Then it will decrease the enzyme activity

4. Activation energy

4.1. The minimum energy that reacting particles need to possess in order for a reaction to take place.

4.1.1. Most of the reactions shown in the pathways above would not proceed without the presence of enzymes. Enzymes speed up these reactions by lowering the activation energy
