Therefore, the criteria defining coenzymes and prosthetic groups are not strict. An enzyme may be comprised of two or more protein chains (peptide chain). When it consists of two or more peptide chains, each peptide chain is called a subunit. Their ratio varies in the body and the organs. The constituted lipid of biomembranes includes an important steroid and phosphatide located in the core. In an animal cell, cholesterol is the major biomembrane component, whereas the membrane in plant cells has a higher level of sitosterol.

The total amount of cholesterol in the body is about 35 g for a person with a body weight of 68 kg. 11). 11 Cholesterol metabolism. 2: isopenthenyldiphosphate d-isomerase. Metabolic Pathways in the Human Body 49 food is ingested, and 20–25% of the circulating cholesterol is made in the liver. The level of cholesterol is the highest in the liver, followed by the skin; it has not been reported in other organs except for the hippocampal region of the brain. In mammals including humans, steroid hormones needed in organs other than the skin and liver are not biosynthesized.

Unlike anaerobic glycolysis (Embden–Meyerhof– Parnas or EMP shunt), it should be noticed that ATP is not produced directly in the TCA cycle. Except for conversion of GTP into ATP in the cycle, the reduced coenzymes (NADH and FADH2) generated are used for synthesis of ATP by oxidative phosphorylation following the electron transfer system. These sugar metabolism pathways take place in the cytosol and mitochondria of hepatic parenchymal cells. Since glucose serves as a substrate of anaerobic glycolysis, skeletal muscle can perform high-level activity even when aerobic oxidation cannot be used, so that an organism can function even in an oxygen-poor environment.
