Biological oxidation is a chemical process similar to fuel combustion. What common products are formed as a result of these processes? What substances are oxidized in the human body? What are the differences between biological oxidation and combustion in inanimate nature?
1) carbon dioxide and water;
2) glucose (carbohydrates), amino acids (proteins), fatty acids (fats) are oxidized in the human body;
3) biological oxidation is partial, occurs under the action of enzymes, slowly (stepwise), part of the energy is stored in the form of ATP, in contrast to it, the combustion process is characterized by: a one-step reaction, energy release, complete oxidation.
Remember: The process of learning a person lasts a lifetime. The value of the same knowledge for different people may be different, it is determined by their individual characteristics and needs. Therefore, knowledge is always needed at any age and position.
