    I am looking for a flow chart that combines all the components of gluconeogenesis, glycolysis, and all of the effectors in the cascade. I believe I am going to have to make my own, but I was wondering if there wasn't one out there somewhere that I could use.

    Thanks

    Try to find some posters that contain exactly what you want. I have seen a few that do a great job of linking all the different pathways together

    you're better off making your own poster. the process will help you remember

    Yup, I agree. Make your own chart, the process of making your own chart is very useful in helping you memorize those biochemical pathways. On a side note, a fellow was telling me how in when he was studying for step I, he made a huge biochem chart detailing every step of glycolysis, gluconeogensis, the TCA, and all of the rest of the interconnected cycles to study for step I and he advised us all to do the same. I'm glad that I didn't listen to him though, because all you really need to know for step I in biochem is really covered in First Aid. Glycolysis and many of the biochem pathways that you have to memorize for class are not detailed in first aid because they aren't important for step I. I think that step I has gotten a lot more clinically based in recent years (ie the past 5 yrs).

    Making your own is great, see also "metabolism at a glance" by Salway excellent flowcharts

    Try Stryer's biochemistry book. I lost my copy.... but I think it has said flow chart in it.

    Lippincott's is good, I'd use it as a guide maybe but make your own. That's the only way to know it. I made posters, and some are still hanging in my apartment! I'm such a biochem nerd.

  11. I agree, you should make your own...I had a lot of fun doing this in college. I used 2 11x17" pieces of paper, taped together, then shrunk it via a Xerox machine.

    For med school, Lippincott's Biochem is enough. :)

    Thanks guys for all of your input. I did make my own and it helped tremendously.

    Just a tip for anyone out there who is planning on making one for themselves. I was planning on going out and buying an easel pad (~$15) to have several large sheets of paper to draw it out on. However, I found that you can buy a desk calendar for about $2 and use the backs of the sheets.

    Again thanks for your help.

    You can get those massive biochem charts that were previously linked to for free by emailing a roche sales rep and requesting one. I got two... one for the lab, one for my living room wall :)

  15. Hi,

    This is an old thread I came across - anyone had luck getting these posters from Roche recently? I just emailed a rep, will wait and see.

    For those of us who've seen this poster - is it comparable to the poster included in "Clinical Biochemistry Made Ridiculously Simple"? I have seen students use a giant wall poster as an aid for Biochem, but never asked about the source, though now that I'm on the lookout myself, I wish I did. It looked like an amazing poster, organized pathways and had a lot of clinically relevant bubbles...Any other sources I can get this from? Perhaps a link online?

    Any help on this would be appreciate :)

    thanks for the necro-bump.

    hope the roche poster works out... it's been a decade since they sent them to me. :)

    FYI, I emailed Roche and they sent me a poster free of charge.
     
  19. Thanks for the responses :) I emailed Roche reps near my city, hopefully they'll send me something soon. Fingers-crossed!
