NTR 708 Energy Metabolism 3. Prerequisite: BCH 453 and an introductory NTR course.

Relationship of biochemical and physiological events within the cell, tissue, organ and system with the nutrient needs as sources of energy for productive animal life. Digestion, absorption and metabolism of energy sources. Presentation of processesof energy transformations within living structures in relation to energetics, biological oxidations, coupled reactions, anabolic and catabolic systems, metabolic control, partitioning and efficiency.

FM 706 Vitamin Metabolism 3. Prerequisite: ANS(NTR,PO) 415 and BCH 453.

Structures, chemical and physical properties, functions, distribution, absorption, transport, metabolism, storage, excretion, deficiencies, and toxicity of vitamins in humans and domestic animals. Interactions between vitamins and other factors affecting vitamin metabolism or bioavailability as well as the nutritional significance of essential fatty acids and metabolism of prostaglandins, prostacyclins and leukotrienes. Application of knowledge will include critical review of scientific literature, experimental design, and formulation of vitamin supplements.
