- Week 3 DiscussionDiscussion Topic Due January 28 at 11:59 PMThe Importance of ATP and Enzymes
ATP (adenosine triphosphate) has been called the energy currency of the cell. Briefly outline the cycle by which energy is stored in and released from ATP. Discuss how ATP is critically important to cellular chemical processes.Enzymes are protein materials that control chemical processes. Describe the specific mechanisms of enzyme function. Pick a specific enzyme and describe its function and the importance of that function to life. Discuss how the loss of that enzyme would disrupt living processes. Make sure your explanation of enzymes is informed by the textbook.
- Post your response to the Discussion Area by the due date assigned. Respond to at least two posts by the end of the week.
- Week 3 ProjectAssignment Due January 31 at 11:59 PMPhotosynthesis and Cellular Respiration
Cellular respiration and photosynthesis form a critical cycle of energy and matter that supports the continued existence of life on earth. In a 2-3 page Word document, describe the stages of cellular respiration and photosynthesis and their interaction and interdependence including raw materials, products, and amount of ATP or glucose produced during each phase. How is each linked to specific organelles within the eukaryotic cell? What has been the importance and significance of these processes and their cyclic interaction to the evolution and diversity of life?
