I'm reading my FA again and was wondering what is the primary source of energy for RBCs during starvation because they can't use ketones? Please let me know whenever you have a chance.
Thanks and happy studying!
I am a bit confused with the answer given by Kaplan note 2013 in biochem book. In the review questions:-
1)The peptide ala-arg-his-gly-glu is treated with peptidases to release all of the amino acids. The solution is adjusted to ph7, and electrophoresis is performed. In the...

I have a question related to allosteric inhibitors..
let's say we have an allosteric inhibitor of an enzyme, If the noncompetitive inhibitor binding to the enzyme at the site of substrate will decrease the Vmax but won't decrease the Km, what about the allosteric inhibitor of the enzyme, will...
why doesn't iron deficiency cause symptoms of porphyria like lead poisoning, i.e to cause acquired porphria?
photosensitivity occurs in porphria cutanea tarda duo to elevation of porphyrin, so why doesn't this occur with lead poisoning and iron deficiency??
I really did not like Kaplan biochemistry. It was too sophisticated and contained so much details. After all, I decided to study FA and used Kaplan for understanding some parts. It really wasted my time.

Folks who have took the exam already
Can you guys please throw some light on what areas of Molecular /Biochem and Anatomy do we focus upon. There seems to be an increasing trend of being tested in these subjects.
I started the 2ed revision of bio , I'm reading KLN for 2ed time then reading FA for 1st time.. I noticed that a lot of information which is mentioned in KLN not in mentioned in FA
What should I do ? concentrated on what on FA .. and write the related addition info about it .
or write the...
Ok, this one is probably a very overlooked topic but a very High Yield one, so lets start a discussion and postings of useful links and Vids explaining USMLE Lab Techniques found in Genetics/Immuno/Biochem etc. ( PCR, Blots, Assays, Coombs for instance)
Kindly post useful videos that you have...
