What positively and negatively regulates the pyruvate kinase reaction?
negative - high levels of ATP
positive - high levles of fructose-1,6-bisphosphate
What is the pasteur effect in relation of regulation of glycolysis
inhibition of glycolysis by oxygen through inhibition of PFK by increase in ATP/AMP ratio
How does insulin regulate glucose uptake and in turn glycolysis
insulin increases the levels of membrane bound glucose transporter (GLUT)
