I had fun reading this book, it helped me understand the concept I’m learning in class better, but there was some issues with the way things were worded which made it hard to understand. Such as,” abundance of one particular fuel (e.g., carbohydrate) can cause cells to rely more on that source than on alternatives. This influence of substrate availability on the rate of metabolism is termed the mass action effect. ” Which i had to rephrase to, “ Metabolism is based on substrate availability.
So, an abundance of one particular fuel can cause cells to rely on that substance more than others. also known as, the Mass effect.” To better understand context.
