The Pentose Phosphate Pathway of Glucose Oxidation Glucose,labeled with S1u1p114s1s1p0c
The pentose phosphate pathway of glucose oxidation Glucose,labeled with 14C in different carbon atoms,is added to a crude extract of a tissue rich in the enzymes of the pentose phosphate pathway.The most rapid production of 14CO2 will occur when the glucose is labeled in:
The pentose phosphate pathway of glucose oxidation In a tissue that metabolizes glucose via the pentose phosphate pathway,C-1 of glucose would be expected to end up principally in:
There are a variety of fairly common human genetic diseases in which enzymes required for the breakdown of fructose,lactose,or sucrose are defective.However,there are very few cases of people having a genetic disease in which one of the enzymes of glycolysis is severely affected.Why do you suppose such mutations are seen so rarely?
Define "fermentation" and explain,by describing relevant reactions,how it differs from glycolysis.Your explanation should include a discussion of the role of NADH in the reaction(s).
