Citric acid cycle compounds


"Oh Citric Acid Is Of (course) A SiLly STupid Funny Molecule":

Oxaloacetate-->Citrate-->Aconitate-->Isocitrate-->Oxalosuccinate-->                Alpha-ketoglutarate-->SuccinyL-CoA-->SuccinaTe-->Fumarate-->Malate

             SilLy and sTupid used to differentiate succinyL and succinaTe

                          Alternatives 

               "Can I Ask Sharon Stone For My Orgasm?"
           "Can I Keep Selling Sex For Money, Officer?"
            Citrate -->Isocitrate -->alpha Ketogluterate--> Succinyl CoA -->Succinate                                     -->Fumerate    -->Malate -->Oxaloacetate.

Glycolysis steps

 "Goodness Gracious, Father Franklin Did Go By Picking Pumpkins (to) Prepare Pies":
Glucose
Glucose-6-P
Fructose-6-P
Fructose-1,6-diP
Dihydroxyacetone-P
Glyceraldehyde-P
1,3-Biphosphoglycerate
3-Phosphoglycerate
2-Phosphoglycerate (to)
Phosphoenolpyruvate [PEP] Pyruvate • 'Did', 'By' and 'Pies' tell you the first part of those three: di-, bi-, and py-.
• 'PrEPare' tells location of PEP in the process 

Urea cycle compounds

 Ordinary Card Citizens' Arguments 'As part'  Of  Making Fun Are Unacceptable.
  Ornithine-->Carbamoyl-->Citrulline-->Arginosuccinate-->Aspart'ate-->Oxaloacetate-->Malate
  -->Fumarate-->Arginine-->Urea.

Heme synthesis: amino acid precursors

"Dracula wants to Suck ' blood '[think 'heme'] with his Glystening teeth!":

Succinyl CoA and Glycine are precursor amino acids to pyrrole rings, which is the basic unit of heme.

{ Structure of Hb

Fe+Four pyrrole rings =Heme

Heme +Globin(aminoacid chain)=Hemoglobin  }

Metabolism sites

"Use both arms to HUG":

Heme synthesis Urea cycle Gluconeogenesis · These reactions occur in both cytoplasm and mitochondria.

Phosphorylation cascade: action during low glucose

"In the Phasted State, Phosphorylate":

The phosphorylation cascade becomes active when blood glucose is low.
