Question #1
Why did Claude Bernard's work on the synthesis of glycogen in liver lead to an understanding of pathways? In which of the links below is the synthesis and breakdown of complex materials discussed?
Link-#02 Link-#22 Link-#13 Link-#87

Question #2
In a chemical reaction the reacting molecules crash into each other - see Image #1. They then enter a 'transition state' before becoming product molecules. In which of the links below is the energy of this transition state discussed?
Link-#73 Link-#80 Link-#43 Link-#88

Question #3
Increasing the concentration of reacting molecules in a chemical reaction will change the rate at which the product molecules will form. In which of the links below is this property discussed and the reasons give?
Link-#66 Link-#13 Link-#12 Link-#58

Question #4
Decomposition historically was thought to be carried out by whole organisms, but when is was shown to take place in soluble extracts, it was realized that cells and organisms contained agents that could bring about and increase in the rate of chemical reactions. In which of the links below are these agents described?
Link-#38 Link-#65 Link-#55 Link-#07
