- Adenine : A base incorporated into DNA and RNA and part of an energy carrier, as ATP, in metabolism.
- Adenosine : One of the nucleotides used to build RNA; the deoxy form is used to make DNA.
- Alanine cycle : A way for muscle cells to use amino acids as energy sources, while transferring to the liver the expensive task of dealing with the ammonium released from those amino acids.
- Anabolism : Biological processes that build larger molecules from smaller ones, and increase the size of bones, organs and muscles.
- Antineoplastic agent : Drug that prevents the development, maturation, or spread of neoplastic cells.
- Archaea : A major group of numerous microorganisms fundamentally different from the bacteria and including many chemolithotrophs and extremophiles.
- Astrocyte : A non-neural cell type in the brain and spinal cord of vertebrates.
- Beta oxidation : The process by which fatty acids, in the form of Acyl-CoA molecules, are broken down in the mitochondria to generate Acetyl-CoA, the entry molecule for the Krebs Cycle.
- Biosynthesis : The production of chemical metabolites by living systems.
- Catabolism : The metabolic process that breaks down molecules into smaller units.
- Cell (biology) : The basic unit of life, consisting of biochemical networks enclosed by a membrane.
- Cellular respiration : A series of metabolic processes by which living cells produce energy through the oxidation of organic substances.
- Coenzyme A : A coenzyme notable for its role in the synthesis and oxidization of fatty acids, and the oxidation of pyruvate in the citric acid cycle.
- Cryobiology : The study of living organisms, organs, biological tissues or biological cells at low temperatures.
- Cyclic AMP : An adenine nucleotide that is a second messenger and a key intracellular regulator, functioning as a mediator of activity for a number of hormones, including epinephrine, glucagon, and ACTH.
- DNA : A macromolecule — chemically, a nucleic acid — that stores genetic information.
- Facultative anaerobic organism : An organism, usually a bacterium, that makes ATP by aerobic respiration if oxygen is present but is also capable of switching to fermentation under anaerobic conditions.
- Flavin : A tricyclic biochemical based on pteridine that is derived from the vitamin riboflavin.
- Gluconeogenesis : Formation of glucose, especially by the liver, from noncarbohydrate precursors, such as amino acids, lactate, pyruvate, and the glycerol portion of fats.
- Glucose-6-phosphate : (G6P), is glucose that has been phosphorylated on carbon 6. The conversion from glucose to G6P is the first step of glycolysis for energy production in cells.
- Glycolysis : A biochemical pathway by which a molecule of glucose is oxidized to two molecules of pyruvate.
- Heterocycle : A cyclized chemical with nitrogen, oxygen or sulfur within the ring structure.
- Lactic fermentation : A form of fermentation that occurs in animal cells in the absence of oxygen.
- Life : Living systems, of which biologists seek the commonalities distinguishing them from nonliving systems.
- List of biology topics : Add brief definition or description
- Metabolism : The modification of chemical substances by living organisms.
- Microbial metabolism : The means by which a microbe obtains the energy and nutrients (e.g. carbon) it needs to live and propagate.
- Mitochondrion : Structure, function, life cycle and evolutionary theories involving the origins and role of the mitochondrion.
- Neurotransmitter : A class of chemicals which relay, amplify or modulate electrical signals between a neuron and other cells in the nervous system.
- Nucleic acid metabolism : Process by which nucleotides are synthesized and degraded, using an anabolic mechanism generally involving chemical reaction of phosphate, pentose sugar, and a nitrogenous base.
- Nucleic acid : A class of macromolecules important in conveying genetic information.
- Photosynthesis : The process by which an organism captures and stores energy from sunlight, energy it uses to power its cellular activities.
- Platelet : Cell fragments circulating in the blood.
- Protein kinase : A family of enzymes that catalyze the conversion of adenosine triphosphate and a protein to adenosine diphosphate and a phosphoprotein.
- RNA : A polymer, made using the nucleotides of adenosine, guanosine, uridine and cytidine, that is used for a variety of biological functions in living systems.
- Tyrosine kinase : An enzyme that catalyzes tyrosine phosphorylation; the transfer of a phosphate group from an adenosine triphosphate (ATP) to the hydroxyl oxygen atom on the amino acid tyrosine.
- Uracil : One of the four bases found in ribonucleic acid (RNA).
