I'm a physician doctor with an MD degree. My passion for teaching has always been appreciated by students with whom I have shared my knowledge. I'm a passionate teacher of medical biochemistry and would like to share my knowledge about this beautiful subject with all those who is interested to learn to understand the cellular metabolic events and to understand the metabolic disease process. I would like to learn new things by keeping myself updated with current research in the field. Let us share the knowledge each other!!

Gluconeogenesis - Question and Answer

In this video I have explained answer to one of my question on gluconeogenesis. I have also explained in brief about conversion of propionyl CoA to glucose while explaining the answer for this question.

Gluconeogenesis - precursors and regulation

In this video I have explained how non-carbohydrate sources like lactate, alanine, propionyl CoA and glycerol are converted to glucose in gluconeogenesis process. All the important gluconeogenesis enzymes are explained with their function. Important enzymes fr each of the gluconeogenic precursors conversion into glucose is explained.

Biochemical Changes in Chronic Alcoholism


Answer to a Question on Uncoupler of Electron Transport Chain












In this video I have explained a question on uncouplers of electron transport chain. Chemical uncouplers are 2,4-Dinitrophenol, dinitrocresol, pentachlorophenaol. Physiological uncouplers are thermogenin, uncoupling proteins UCP1, UCP2, UCP3, UCP4, UCP5. All are present in various tissues like brown adipose tissue, skeletal muscle, brain, neurons, other tissues. Uncouplers increase BMR, body temperature, metabolic rate, increased rate of electron transport, increased O2 consumption, increased respiratory rate.
