Everyone who has ever taken biology at school has heard of the Krebs cycle, but few realize that Hans Krebs also discovered two other cycles. It is appropriate, at the centenary of his birth, to consider the circumstances and experiments that led Krebs to establish these metabolic pathways.

Is Citrate A Critical Signal in Immunity and Inflammation?
Krebs cycle, elucidated by Sir Hans Krebs, is a bioenergetic pathway occurring in the mitochondrial matrix of all eukaryotic organisms. It is an essential process for energy generation from diet
Sir Hans Adolf Krebs: Architect of Metabolic Cycles
Sir Hans Adolf Krebs discovered the citric acid cycle and other novel metabolic pathways through his investigation of biochemical (metabolic) pathways from animal tissues from animal tissue.
Regulatory principles in metabolism-then and now.
The present review describes some of the original work of Eric Newsholme, its relevance to metabolic homoeostasis and disease and application to present state-of-the-art studies, which generate substantial amounts of data that are extremely difficult to interpret without a fundamental understanding of regulatory principles.
Application of genomics in biochemistry
The aim of this work was to present the fields of genomics and post-genomics, and to explain their principles and use in biochemistry in order to understand the metabolism of an organic entity.
Krebs Cycle Reborn in Macrophage Immunometabolism.
A striking change has happened in the field of immunology whereby specific metabolic processes have been shown to be a critical determinant of immune cell activation and the possibility of targeting these events therapeutically for inflammatory diseases is speculated.
Systems biology: old news or new stimulus for biochemistry.
In this issue of Essays in Biochemistry, biochemistry meets systems biology-a blind date that may hold all the promises, pitfalls and failures of a relationship where a new discipline has been sprung
Cellular Metabolism at a Glance.
A holistic view of metabolism is provided highlighting the biochemical principles underlying its regulation as well as identifying metabolic intermediaries that act as key players on differentiation, proliferation, and function of immune cells.

The path of carbon in photosynthesis.
Most, if not all, of the reactions of carbon reduction in photosynthesis are known to occur, although at a diminished rate, in the dark long after the immediate reducing and energy-carrying agents formed from the photochemical reaction have decayed.
