Possible Natural Cell Metabolism Failure?
Good night,. I want to ask, is it possible that cell metabolism can fail?
Hello Wina, thanks for the question for HealthReplies.com
Cell metabolism is the chemical reactions in cells that occur to keep the cell alive. The metabolism in the cell is regulated by various enzymes. Cell metabolism itself consists of 2 processes:
Anabolism, which is the process of arranging complex molecules which are essential to support cell growth and development. This process is a process that requires energy.
Catabolism, namely the process of breaking down complex molecules into simpler molecules. This process will produce the energy needed to support anabolism
Metabolism in cells can certainly fail. The causes of failure of cell metabolism include the absence of enzymes used in the metabolic process, absence of metabolic raw materials, there are enzyme inhibitors (other chemicals that inhibit the work of enzymes). The failure of cell metabolism will cause certain diseases. The type of disease of course depends on which metabolic mechanism is failing.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
