C - citrate
I - isocitrate
K - a-ketoglutarate
S - succinyl CoA
S - succinate
F - fumarate
M - malate

also remember succiNATE is LATE (comes after succinyl coA) smiling face

Lineweaver-Burk Plot:
Look for X ( two lines cross each other) swords cross, compete.
Non competetive: look for V (two lines form a V) --> Victory, no competetition for the victor.

How you remember that -1/Km is on x axis vs. 1/Vmax on y-axis. Well, that's simple. If you plotted concentration vs. velocity, you'd put substrate concentration on X-axis, Velocity on Y-axis.
You know that Km is substrate concentration...so velocity is on Y-axis.

North pole Quest Sets You Trouble as (polar, first amino then alcohol groups)
All Vail to Love Ice For Water and (hydrohphobic, first alipathic than aromatic)
Dark Energy Results in Hard Kold so (charged, first negative then positive)
People Give Much Culfur (no sidechain, imino acid, sulphur containing)

N-Asn-Asparagine, Q-Gln-Glutamine, S-Ser-Serine, Y-Tyr-Tyrosine, T-Thr-Threonine

A-Ala-Alanine, V-Val-Valine, L-Leu-Leucine, I-Ile-Isoleucine, F-Phe-Phenlylalinine

D-Glu-Glutamic Acid, E-Asp-Aspartic Acid, R-Arg-Arginine, H-His-Histidine, K-Lys-Lysine

P-Pro-Proline, G-Gly-Glycine, M-Met-Methionine, C-Cys-Cysteine

Hi, Any ways to remember where NADH, & FADH, is produced in the Citric Acid cycle?

Thanks


  #96

Citric Acid Cycle Mnemonics:

1. OxaloaceTAT always STARTS

2. Can I Keep Selling Sex For Money Officer.

Succinate is Late, i.e it comes after Succynyl coa

3.

1 Glucose Produces 12 ATP: Three Naked Girl Freinds.


3 NADH - 9 ATP.


1GTP


FADH2 - 2ATP


  #97

G spot for Sex : GTP is produced between succynyl coa & succinate


  #98

G spot for Sex : GTP in b/w Succynyl coa & succinate


Sex For Fun : FADH2 in b/w Succinate & Fumarate


All of the remaining produce NADH.


Three Naked Girl Friends: 3 NADH, 1 GTP, 1 FADH2 ---> 12 ATP/ 1 Glucose molecule.

Forget Pvt Tim Hall... Best mnemonic for essential AAs I ever learned:

Little Valentine Take My Heart
Practicing Love Improves the Art.

Courtesy of the best Micro/Immuno professor EVER, now retired: John E. Lewis, PhD, Loma Linda Univesity Medical Center.

Learned this from him 40 years ago, dropped completely out of the sciences due to circumstances beyond my control, and re-entered last month (40 years later). And I STILL remember the essential AAs it referenced.

Have fun, y'all.
