There's a section for the MCAT:
Principles of Metabolic Regulation (BC)
-Regulation of metabolic pathways (BIO, BC)
-Maintenance of a dynamic steady state
-Regulation of glycolysis and gluconeogenesis
-Metabolism of glycogen
-Regulation of glycogen synthesis and breakdown
-Allosteric and hormonal control
-Analysis of metabolic control

My question is in regards to the last one, analysis of metabolic control. Does anyone know what this is referring to? Wikipedia talks about some mathematical framework that I've never seen before, and Kaplan books talk about respirometry and calorimeters. Anyone have a better idea of how to analyze metabolic control? Thanks!

Hmm. that seems to me to be a broad term concerning all the various ways our body controls metabolism. Basically by regulating all the different pathways mentioned above with hormones, NT's, and all that good stuff. But that's just my two cents....
