Role of Multienzyme Complexes in the Integration of Cellular Metabolism

  • B. I. Kurganov

Abstract

A large number of degradation processes provide the energetic needs of the living organism and its need of “building materials.” The synthesis of biomacromolecules is a result of numerous biosynthetic reactions. The striking peculiarity of the living system lies in the existence of rather fine and effective regulatory mechanisms that bring each metabolic process to conform with the needs of the whole organism. Thus cellular metabolism represents an integrated system of processes coordinated in space and time. The elucidation of the principles of integration of cellular metabolism is one of the important problems of modern biological chemistry.
