convert hemoglobin to methemoglobin to bind Cyanide
Administer enough to compensate for inhibition
What is an ETC uncoupler?
Molecule that causes a charge gradient so H+ leaks back into the matrix before the ATP synthetase so ATP is not produced.

Name the natural uncoupler of the ETC?
Brown fat cells
How does ADP for ATP production enter the mitochondrial matrix?
ATP-ADP voltage gradient channel. It is an antiport system, 1:1.

Does glucagon play a role in the liver, muscles, or both?
When does the body want to produce lactate from pyruvate?
When there is low Oxygen or a lack of NAD+
How much glucose is required for the brain daily?
How much glucose required for the human body?
Can gluconeogenesis occur in the muscle?
No, only in the liver
What are the three precursors for gluconeogenesis?
***they all come from catabolic rxns. during a fasting state
How much pyruvate, ATP, GTP and NADH are utilized during gluconeogenesis?
Pyruvate = 2
ATP = 4
GTP = 2
NADH = 2
How is OAA sent to the cytosol during gluconeogenesis?
What are the two rxns. that OAA has to go through in order to make PEP?
What is the RLE of gluconeogenesis?
What activates FBPase-1 in gluconeogenesis?
low levels of F2,6BisP (from phosphorylatd FBP-2/PFK-2)
What is protein sparing?
Utilizing other body resources for energy instead of spending energy on gluconeogenesis.
What molecules participate in protein sparing and what absorption state are they found?
= liver glycogen
= ketone bodies
In the HMP shunt, what is NADPH used for?
In the HMP shunt, what is Ribose5P used for?
Biosynthesis of nucleotides
In the HMP shunt, what is created from the RLE G6PD?
How is NADPH produced for tissue with no Mitochondria?
Use the HMP Shunt
NADPH is produced from G6PD and sent out to those tissues
What is cytochrome P-450 system?
Part of the HMP shunt, oxidative branch
NADPH offers a hydrogen to help make drugs more soluble so they can be excreted through the kidneys
What is the pathway to reduce hydrogen peroxide?
Oxidative HMP shunt: G6PD - NADPH - Reduce oxidized glutathione - reduced glutathione offers H+ to H2O2 to make H2O - NADPH then reduces glutathione again since it is toxic (GSSG > GSH)

What happens if galactokinase is deficient in galactose metabolism?
Aldose reductase will convert the extra galactose to galctitol and cause neuronal problems and cataracts
