Metabolism – anabolism/ catabolism, differences between catabolic & anabolic pathways.
Anaerbolic Carbohydrate Metabolism: Individual reactions of glycolysis, entry of galactose & fructose in glycolysis, utilization of sucrose and lactose, alcoholic fermentation, reduction of
pyruvate to lactate, glycogenlysis, biosynthesis of starch & sucrose, gluconeogenesis, regulation of glycolysis.
Cittric acid cycle: Oxidation of Pyruvate to Acetyl CoA,individual reaction of TCA cycle,
energetics of the cycle, anaplerotic reactions, regulation of TCA.

Unit – II
Lipid Metabolism: Individual reaction of beta oxidation pathway, omega oxidation, oxidation of unsaturated fatty acid and odd chain fatty acids, formation of ketone bodies, biosynthesis of fatty acids, role of serum lipoproteins (LDL & HDL) in the development of coronary heart diseases.
