Proteins are essential components of living cells, performing various functions. These include catalysis, metabolic regulation, and feedback inhibition of protein synthesis. Protein synthesis is the process by which DNA codes for amino acids that create proteins to be synthesized in a cell’s ribosome. Feedback inhibition occurs when a product inhibits an enzyme involved with its own production (e.g., insulin secretion) or when an inhibitory neurotransmitter binds to receptors on the presynaptic neuron and thus prevents release of a stimulatory neurotransmitter (e.g., norepinephrine). Metabolic regulation is achieved through enzymes that play key roles in catabolism and anabolism, including glycolysis, gluconeogenesis, oxidative phosphorylation, and the urea cycle.

Section IV – Supporting Images or Media Files (if applicable)
image file name goes here with a caption beneath it. Do not upload more than one picture per row; if you have multiple pictures to include on this page make sure that they are clearly labeled as “image” followed by either their filename or section number so there is no confusion between images when uploading them later. If your content does not need any supporting media files then please insert an empty table for Section IV instead. Note that HTML formatting can be used in the image caption.
insert an empty line beneath this last paragraph and before Section V to create a new row for your content, if applicable
Section IV – Supporting Images or Media Files (if application )
Section V – Content for this section can include an introduction to the content, such as a paper title or abstract. Provide your reader with context into what they are about to read that is unrelated to the actual text of your blog post and ends in a colon so it’s clear when you’re beginning Section VI below. Your intro should ideally be no more than one paragraph long but could expand past that if necessary. Make sure there is at least two empty lines before Section VI begins, which would also need two empty lines beneath itself after being finished (for consistency).

To end this list out, we’ll take a look at two metabolic regulators: AMP kinase and mTOR.
Section VI – Protein Synthesis, Feedback inhibition of protein synthesis, and Metabolic Regulation
The human body is made up of billions of cells that need to maintain constant upkeep so they can function properly while the rest are being replaced by new cells. This process involves millions of chemical reactions which go into maintaining homeostasis in our bodies. All cellular processes including metabolism require proteins for their operation due to their large diversity with different roles such as communication, transport of molecules, enzymatic activity and structural roles.
Proteins are large macromolecules that consist of amino acids linked together by a peptide bond in sequence to form a linear chain. The body needs them for the growth, repair and upkeep of cells because they carry out various functions such as communication between cells, catalyzing chemical reactions in order to maintain homeostasis within their environment and creating new proteins where needed. To produce protein or degrade it there is need for energy which can either come from ATP hydrolysis via enzymes that function on glucose levels or other sources like ketone bodies when available due its ability to bypass glycolysis entirely (Henderson et al., 2013). For instance the human
body needs protein for muscle growth, repair and upkeep of cells or to produce new tissue. The body can either get the needed energy from ATP hydrolysis via enzymes that function on glucose levels or other sources like ketone bodies when available due its ability to bypass glycolysis entirely (Henderson et al., 2013).
Proteins have three functions in the human body; they do work, give feedback inhibition of protein synthesis within a cell and regulate metabolic pathways – this is done by signaling molecules such as insulin which will tell certain cells what type of fuel source it should use at any given time. Protein synthesis starts out with RNA being transcribed and then translated into proteins before attaching them onto ribosomes (Nelson et al
