Metabolism: Energy, Enzymes, and Regulation

This chapter discusses energy and the laws of thermodynamics. The participation of energy in cellular metabolic processes and the role of adenosine-5'-triphosphate (ATP) as the energy currency of cells are examined. The chapter concludes with a discussion of enzymes as biological catalysts: how they work, how they are affected by their environment, and how they are regulated.
