Explain the three metabolic processes of cellular respiration—glycolysis, the tricarboxylic acid cycle (TCA), and oxidative phosphorylation—in a flow chart format. Include other ways the body breaks down nutrients into usable products together with the process of lipolysis and how triglycerides are stored and used in the body; how protease enzymes break down proteins; the deamination of amino acids; and how ammonia is converted to urea.
Glycolysis is a metabolic process of cellular respiration which breaks down glucose in order to generate energy. The TCA cycle (tricarboxylic acid cycle) is a metabolic cycle in which the acetyl coenzyme A is oxidized for the purpose of energy production. Oxidative phosphorylation is a metabolic process in which adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is synthesized.
