A Review on Melanin, Energy, and the Cell
Researchers first understood that metabolism may be seen as a network of interconnected biological events in the nineteenth century. Enzymes appear to catalyze these events, speeding up their progression; yet, human body is not just a sack of enzymes. Disruptions in metabolic processes are involved in several of the most common diseases in modern civilization, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and obesity. This leads in an excess of glucose in the blood in patients with diabetes mellitus. From the first scientific publication in the 17th century until the present day; There have been about six million papers published regarding metabolism. Despite this, new findings are constantly released, offering pieces of the puzzle on the mechanisms of metabolic processes; we cannot explain metabolism by studying individual network responses. It’s like to attempting to comprehend the intricate workings of our solar system with isolated photos of the Moon, Sun, and planets. To comprehend metabolism, which entails constant change, it is vital to examine the network as a dynamic whole, including the energy required. Because energy is defined as everything that causes a change, any change necessitates the expenditure of energy. As a result, cellular metabolism necessitates the existence of power on a constant basis because it involves constant modifications. Until now, glucose has been thought of as the energy source of choice for eukaryotes. However, models based on this dogma have resulted in the establishment of databases with metabolic pathways that are 97 percent contentious. The discrepancy between different metabolic pathway databases is significant and cannot be clearly explained. We believe that the finding of the melanin’s previously unknown intrinsic potential to convert visible and invisible light into chemical energy via dissociation of the water molecule, similar to how chlorophyll in plants does; that is, producing chemical energy transported by hydrogen (H2). It will provide the necessary molecular logic for more coherent and consistent metabolic models to be implemented. recognizing that glucose’s true function is as a supply of carbon chains for our bodies to use The light visible and invisible as the genuine source of power, thanks to melanin, synthesizes the biomolecules that are required to operate and preserve shape; and the creation of a new biochemistry; and the light visible and invisible as the genuine source of power, thanks to melanin. The investigation of glucose metabolism has proven to be a difficult task. Proteins are easier to study. However, we now know that glucose merely offers the building blocks for organic molecules, not the energy required for its own metabolism.
