The flashcards below were created by user apgroupcspring2014 on FreezingBlue Flashcards. What would you like to do?


  1. Sum of all chemical reactions in a cell
    Metabolism
  2. Small molecules that are built up into larger ones – requires energy?
    Anabolism
  3. Larger molecules are broken down to form smaller ones & release energy?
    Catabolism
  4. An anabolic process that joins Monosaccharides to form larger molecules of glycogen, storing energy in the bonds of the larger molecule?
    Dehydration Synthesis
  5. Is an example of catabolism- Also decomposes carbohydrates, lipids & proteins?
    Hydrolysis
  6. Energy that metabolic reactions require before they proceed?
    Activation Energy
  7. A special type of protein that catalyzes a specific biochemical reaction?
    Enzyme
  8. Molecule in which an enzyme acts?
    Substrate
  9. Part of an enzyme that temporarily binds a substrate?
    Active sites
  10. Sequences of enzymes – controlled reactions?
    Metabolic pathway
  11. Chemical that increases the rate of a chemical reaction, but is not permanently altered by this reaction?
    Catalyst
  12. Enzyme usually present in small amounts, that controls the rate of a metabolic pathway by regulating on of its steps?
    Rate limiting enzymes
  13. Small, organic molecule or ion that must combine with an enzyme for activity?
    Co factor
  14. Small, non-protein organic molecule required for the activity of a particular enzyme?
    Co enzyme
  15. Special type of protein that increases the rate of a specific biochemical reaction?
    Enzymes
  16. Essential organic molecules that human cells cannot produce, therefore must be found in our diets – Also provides co enzymes that can function repeatedly?
    Vitamin
