Introduction to metabolism. Glycolysis and gluconeogenesis. Citric acid cycle. Oxidative phosphorylation. Primary reactions of photosynthesis. Calvin cycle and the pentose phosphate pathway. Glycogen metabolism. Fatty acid metabolism. Degradation of proteins and amino acids (urea cycle). Biosynthesis of amino acids. Nucleotide biosynthesis. Integration of metabolism.
Seminars will comprise solving of the problem and numerical questions that accompany each lecture.

1. to recapitulate the basics of metabolism resulting in ATP generation and to explain mechanisms underlying energy conversion in biological systems
2. to show knowledge and understanding of basic metabolic pathways (catabolic and biosynthetic) and modes of their regulation
3. to specify the enzymes that participate in the metabolism, to draw the metabolic reactions and show structure of reaction intermediates
4. to explain the molecular foundations of selected physiological processes
