Hey Amino Acids! Remember me? I'm NAD and I'm here to stay!
Carbohydrates meet Glucose
Hey I'm Glucose! My Fiend ATP will be joining us soon!
Lipids Break Things Down
To top all that off, I lost my keys!! I need to simplify this situation!
I'm pretty simple, just a basic fatty acid!
Hi I'm Protein! I can't remember where I parked my car in the Deamination Lot at Cytoplasm Land! I think I should go check with Amino Acids, there's always something going on there with their friends ATP and NAD NADH!
Anaerobic Reactions are great! We didn't even need Oxygen!!
Yeah! Just like Fermentation and Lactic Acid!
Gosh, I can't remember where my car is either at Cytoplasm Land! I'm pretty sure it was in the Glycolysis Lot since I'm a Carbohydrate! Maybe I should try hanging with Glucose!
In the Beta Oxidation lot, things can get a little confusing as a lipid, I'd better break things down to something simpler, like fatty acids.
Changing for a New Adventure
Wow! Now THAT was and Anaerobic Reaction!! Protein, Carbohydrates, and Lipids all simplified their hectic situations into something simpler, Amino Acids, Glucose, and Fatty Acids!
We have to say goodbye to more of our our friends NADH and ATP, and we welcome our friend NAD! On the bright side, Lipids (now Fatty Acids) found his keys (Re-Dox Reaction)!
I found my keys!
Looks like my friends and I found our cars, Pyruvate or Pyruvic Acid! We're off on our next adventure, in the Matrix of the Mitochondria!!
