  • Sorry, not doing your homework for you.

  • Thanks! I am far from one of those people who dont do their own homework, I just wanted to compare to what I have. Maybe I should edit my OP? I have they start with a certain molecular reactant (aka substrates) which are then changed in a series of reactions that generate intermediates and finally reaching the end of the series of reactions, generating certain products.

    However I am not sure if that is what they are asking for

  • Are your referring to aerobic metabolism; cellular respiration, or the Kreb's cycle (anaerobic metabolism)? Google the terms for pathways and pictures.

  • None of those. It just asks for a general metabolic pathway, which is why I am confused. The only thing I can thing of is the reactants, intermediates, and products

  • I'm not very good at biology but I typed in general metabolic pathways and came up with this site:

    and after putting in parts of general metaboli pathways I found this site:

    I don't know if either of those are what you are looking for but best of luck.
