What Is Biochemistry?
The word ‘BIOCHEMISTRY’-
means -Chemistry of Living
beings or Chemical Basis of
Life.
Principles of Biochemistry
 Cells (basic structural units of living
organisms) are highly organized and
constant source of energy is required to
maintain the ordered state.
 Living processes contain thousands of
chemical pathways.
 Precise regulation and integration of these
pathways are required to maintain life
 Certain important pathways e.g.Glycolysisis
found in almost all organisms.
All organisms use the same type of
molecules: carbohydrates, proteins,
lipids & nucleic acids.
Instructions for growth,
reproduction and developments for
each organism is encoded in their
DNA
