Subway To Metabolism

Subway To Metabolism

This is a great infographic (Popular Science) showing metabolism; the complex network of chemical reactions that occur in the cells of our body. The subway lines are metabolic pathways, showing the transformation of one chemical into another, catalysed by enzymes, with the stations showing which chemicals are used by different pathways.

It’s not a comprehensive figure, but it gives the general idea of what is happening during each pathway, laid out in a simple to understand form. Onwards!
