Browse metabolism pathways
Metabolism refers to all chemical reactions that happen inside organisms to sustain their lives, including but not limited to digestion. Metabolic processes convert food to energy that cells then use to perform bodily functions, to build proteins, fats, and other important molecules, and to dispose of waste. Numerous signaling pathways are involved in metabolism, including the AKT and GSK3 signaling pathways.
Akt is a serine/threonine kinase that is involved in mediating various biological responses, such as inhibition of apoptosis.
GSK3 is a ubiquitously expressed, highly conserved serine/threonine protein kinase found in all eukaryotes.
