Biology of Sharks and Their Relatives (Marine Biology)

Winner of selection Magazine’s striking educational name award, January 2005! Sharks and their relations are the themes of great curiosity. The public’s fascination is prompted through their roles in video clips and well known literature, whereas the media races to hide tales of predators endangering helpless people.

Absolute value of the exergonic reaction must be greater than that of the endergonic reaction, so that the resultant of the two coupled reactions is exergonic. To this thermodynamic condition (exergonic resultant) must be added a biochemical condition, because such coupling poses the problem of the simultaneous presence of two compounds in the same place in the cell. 1). 8 illustrates this process. To illustrate this phenomenon, Audigié and Zonszain (1988) give the following example, where Pm denotes molecular phosphorus.

Not only NH3, which is very toxic, when they are catabolized, but also derived products (urea, uric acid) which are toxic to lesser degrees: all these products must therefore be eliminated from the organism and are the constituents of urine represented by U. In this way, the metabolizable part of Ab is A=Ab-U. The process of formation of urine and its elimination constitutes the basis of nitrogenous excretion. In aquatic animals, ammonia, rapidly eliminated in the fluid environment, is the predominant means of excretion: these animals are ammoniotelic.

This example demonstrates in a spectacular way the power of enzymatic catalysis. 6 explains the mechanism of decrease in activation energy. Regulation of enzymatic catalysis Enzymatic regulation is one of the fundamental mechanisms of the homeostatic regulation of the internal environment, a concept put forward at the end of the 19th century by Claude Bernard (Rodwell, 1989). Two main types of mechanism are put into play to regulate enzymatic catalysis, either modification of the concentration of enzyme or modification of the catalytic efficiency of the enzyme.
