    1. sooo, which part of this process evolved first? and can the metabolic pathways function without each and every part of the process intact? if so, is there a point where missing parts destroy the integrity of the system? is there any way this could have formed in a step by step process?

      FUCK YOU, I’M USING SCIENCE

      • Are you trying to suggest this was DESIGNED and it didn’t just happen over billions of years?

        No, unless there’s massive disease, and then sure, you’d die.
        But that’s true of any process, it either gets repaired (the underlying immune system response system is not shown) or it stops.

        Four Hundred billion chemical reactions per second to maintain your Body…and no, that’s not science Nate, that’s pseudo Logic…

        Look up the Scientific Method trollfriend 😉

        Prokaryotes have diverse, but much simpler metabolisms. Obviously since they don’t have livers, muscles, insulin, etc.
        “and can the metabolic pathways function without each and every part of the process intact?”
        Yes. There are living examples of most of the intermediate steps between prokaryotes and mammals.

      • Of these reactions, glycolysis is thought to have evolved first.

    3. Uhg, I come to MCS to escape this. Why, Demon? Why?!
      Also, we learned 2-oxoglutarate as alpha-ketoglutarate

    4. I looked at this and saw “big-ass busy flowchart.”
      Hell with it, I’m a musician. If I understood this shit I’d be an O-chem major.
