KINE 5322. METABOLISM & EXERCISE BIOCHEMISTRY. 3 Hours.
This course will address the regulation of exercise metabolism as well as the distinct biochemical pathways through which energy transduction occurs. This will allow the student to appreciate not only the end result of metabolism, ultimately the production and maintenance of cellular ATP levels, but also the pathways that biological machines use to achieve ATP homeostasis. Calorimetry, respiratory exchange ratio, and substrate utilization during exercise will be assessed as part of the laboratory section of this course.
