What could be the meaning of the red circles with the letters S? Sulfur? Sidechains?
Would it be a good question for the main site?

@CowperKettle all this should be in the paper. S is probably for sulfur

A: What could these letters "S" in red circles mean in a biochemical diagram?

orthocresolIt almost certainly refers to the amino acid (residue) serine. The numbers (300, 333, 351) refer to the residue numbers. The COOH at the end signifies the C-terminus of the protein (subunit). The black P's next to it are phosphate groups; both protein kinase A and C ("PKA" and "PKC") are involved...

I got an answer ))
 
@CowperKettle They look like serine residues to me
@CowperKettle Oh good

Whenever you see one of them illustrated somehow in a protein, with a number next to them, they're amino acids that shape the protein's function

Meh. There's nothing to understand about signaling pathways, says the trivial experience I've had with them. You just repeat funny acronyms until the Stockholm syndrome kicks in and you think you're understanding something

Q: What are high-energy electrons?

NajI read that (in cellular respiration) the transported electrons in NADH have a higher energy than those in FADH2. I can't find a (simple or otherwise) explanation of what a "high-energy" electron is. I came across a question on Reddit which asks the same question: I am not a chemist but I am try...

Q: What could these letters "S" in red circles mean in a biochemical diagram?

CowperKettleWhat could be the meaning of the red circles with letters S in them in the diagram below? I searched in the text but could not find. From "Role of TREK-1 in Health and Disease, Focus on the Central Nervous System", Figure 2:
