I heard somewhere that cells use different nucleosides bound to triphosphates e.g. ATP, GTP, CTP and other modified compounds: NADH, NADPH to distinguish between different metabolic pathways and so they regulate where they use up the energy. I heard that kinases play an important role in the regulation. Is there a connection (I guess there is if I check NADPH)? Is this regulation mapped? I mean is there a simple map which contains the main processes and the energy carrier and regulatory compounds?
I am looking for something like this map (of receptor responses), but for metabolic regulation:
- Figure 1 - signal transduction - wikipedia
So it possibly contains mitochondria, O2, CO2, flows, ATP, NADPH, etc... I understand that different cell types can have different energy producer and consumer organelles and it is not possible to create something that is universally true, so I would be satisfied with a map of your favorite human cell type.
