Metabolise! (Biochemistry Song)

Metabolise!

Music: Breaking Free (Zac Efron & Vanessa Hudgens)

Rendition of: Edgar Vincent Peñano Bautista

Troy:
We’re thirsty, hungry
Our cells are dying
And there’s no energy

Gabriella:
If we’re lucky
We can make it tomorrow

Troy:
I know what we really need

Food rich with carbohydrates


Gabriella:
And with all those sugar
We’ll have ATP


Both:
But there are still bonds to break

Glycosidic Bonds


Chorus #1
Troy:
Metabolise!
Gabriella:
Sucrose
Troy:
No! Glucose
Both:
Glucose is known as an aldohexose
Troy:
If we need it
Both:
Use glycolysis.
Troy:
To release energy.
Gabriella:
Ohhhh
Troy:
Wait we’re forgetting something
We need other macromolecules

Gabriella:
Oh yes I forgot about
Proteins and Enzymes

Both:
Eating different kinds of food

So we can be healthy

Chorus #2
Troy: Metabolise!
Gabriella: We’re eating’
Troy: Yeah eating!
Both:
Eat lots of protein for our cell’s functions.
Troy:
And for enzymes
and antibodies

Gabriella:
Proteins

Troy:
Yeah proteins
The body’s proteins
Both:
Consists of amino acids
Troy:
There are twenty
Both:
Linked with peptide bonds

Troy:
Let’s name some
Gabriella:
Essential Amino Acids

Troy:
Histamine
Arginine
Gabriella:
Tryptophan
Threonine
Isoleucine

Both:
Methionine

Troy:
Leucine

Lysine
Gabriella:
Valine, what else?

Both:
Phenylalanine!


Chorus #3
Gabriella: DNA
Troy: RNA
Both:
They’re made of phosphate and nitrogenous bases

Pentose Sugar

Troy: Deoxyribose for DNA
Gabriella:
Ribose for RNA
Water In
Troy:
Water Out
Both:
You can change them
By synthesis and hydrolysis
Biochem is fun!
Troy: But it’s already time…
Gabriella: we’re breaking free
Troy: we’re breaking free

Both:
You must know your Biochem
To truly understand… us…
