Molecules of Life and their Metabolism

The molecules of life are water, carbohydrates, protein, fat and nucleic acids.

Water

Carbohydrates

Proteins

Lipids

Nucleosides, Nucleotides and Nucleic Acids

Of these molecules, carbohydrate, protein and fat, are metabolized to a common product, acetyl-CoA, which is then oxidized by the citric acid cycle, ultimately yielding ATP for energy by the process of oxidative phosphorylation through Bioenergetics.
