    HOW TO STUDY METABOLISM

    Advertisements



    STUDY
    SUGGESTIONS


    Read for understanding. Read only what you don't
    know. Organize, organize, organize

    Understand the concepts first. Make notes instead of
    highlighting everything.

    Studying and Exams: Organize, understand, condense,
    memorize. Always remember that it is possible to be a
    worthwhile human being regardless of how much biochemistry you
    know. This won't necessarily help you with biochemistry, but it
    may help you keep your sanity.

    Minimize the amount of material that you have to
    memorize.
    If you understand a general concept, you can
    often figure out the specific details rather than memorize
    them.

    Arrange notes and study time in order of decreasing
    importance.
    Learn the important things first. For each
    topic write down a short summary of the really important
    concepts. Don't write down things you already know, just the
    things you're likely to forget. Use lots of diagrams that have
    meaning for you. Use them extensively.

    Exclude the trivia from your studies. An information
    sorter is provided below. You should consider this the minimal
    information for understanding this portion of the
    course.







    INFORMATION SORTER


    1. Purpose of a pathway - what's the overall
    function?


    2. Names of molecules going into and coming out of the
    pathway.


    3. How the pathway fits in with other pathways.

    4. General metabolic conditions under which the pathway is
    stimulated or inhibited.


    5. Identify, by enzyme name, the control points - steps of
    the pathway that are regulated.


    6. Identify, by molecule name, the general regulatory
    molecules and the direction in which they push the metabolic
    pathway.


    7. Names of reactants and products for each regulated enzyme
    and each enzyme making or using ATP equivalents (e.g., NADH, GTP,
    FADH2).


    8. Essential vitamins and cofactors involved in the pathway
    (if discussed in class).

    9. Consequences of enzyme deficiencies discussed during
    lecture.


    10. Specific molecules that inhibit or activate specific
    enzymes.

    Cleaned up all of the little webbies because I found the info very useful.
    I used to pray and pray for a bike and never got one. Later I learned that God doesn't work that way... so I went out and stole a bike and asked God for forgiveness.
