Net result for first 3 steps in glycolysis is to convert:
unphosphorylated molecule (glucose) to double phosphorylated molecule (fructose 1,6 bisphosphate).
Phophorylation takes place on Carbon 6 (in Gly 1) because:
hydroxyl group can be readily linked to phosphate group to form the phosphoester glucose 6-phosphate.
ATP hydrolysis provides a phosphate group and also makes it to be
irreversible (exergonic)
Bond formed when glucose is phosphorylated is:
Phosphoester bond.
Low energy bond.
Phosphoanhydride bond links
the terminal ATP together.
Enzyme that catalyzes the first reaction is:
Enzyme important in regulation of glycolysis is:
PhosphoFructose Kinase 1
Fructose 1,6 Bisphosphate is split reversibilty by:
Aldolase yeilds how many carbon sugars?
two trioses
(3 carbon sugars)
The two triposes are called:
1. Dihudroxyacetone phosphate
2. Glyceraldehyde 3 Phosphate
Step 1 of glycolysis involves which reactions?
Gly 1 to Gly 5
Step 2 of Glycolysis involves which reactions?
Gly 6 to Gly 7
Step 3 of Glycolysis involves which reactions?
Gly 8 to Gly 10
How many ATP have been consumed per molecule in Phase 1?
2 molecules of ATP per molecule have been consumed.
In Phase 2, ATP production is linked directly to an:
oxidative event.
In Phase 3, energy rich phosphorylated form of pyruvate molecule serves as a driving force for:
ATP generation.
Phase 3, how many ATP are generated?
2 more ATP molecules are generated in final phase.
In the final phase of Glycolysis, the Phosphoester Bond is converted to:
Phosphoenol Bond.
(highly exergonic)
Enolase removes
water from 2-phosphglycerate
Phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) is a ____ energy compound.
PEP is "High" energy compound.
This reaction summarizes which phase of Glycolysis?

Glucose + 2 ATP --> 2 glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate + 2 ADP
The first phase of glycolysis.
This reaction summarizes which phase of Glycolysis?

glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate + NAD+ + ADP + Pi ---> 3-phosphoglycerate + NADH + H + ATP
Second Phase of Glycolysis
This reaction summarizes which phase of Glycolysis?

3-phosphoglycerate + ADP ---> pyruvate + ATP
The third phase of glycolysis
How many ATP were first invested in Gly 1 and Gly 3?
Two ATP in Gly 1 and Gly 3
How many ATP were returned in Gly 7?
2 ATP returned in Gly 7
Overall Expression for Glycolysis:

glucose + 2 NAD + 2 ADP + 2 Pi -----> 2 pyruvate + 2 NADH + 2 H + 2 ATP
Glycolysis is a highly exergonic reaction.
All cells possess ability to extract energy (by oxidizing it to pyruvate).
Fate of pyruvate depends on:
whether oxygen is available.
In the presence of Oxygen, Pyruvate is oxidized to
Acetyl Coenzyme A (Acetyl CoA).
Acetyl CoA can be completely oxidized to
Acetyl CoA can generate up to how many ATP?
Acetyl CoA can generate up to 30 ATP per glucose.
In the absence of Oxygen, how many ATP can be generated?
None. No ATP is generated in anaerobic conditions.
How does the cell get energy if there is no ATP generated in anaerobic conditions?
Anerobic conditions rely on the ATP yield of the 2 ATP per glucose in the pathway.
Glucose is consumed more rapidly in order to:
maintain steady state cellular ATP levels.
In anaerobic conditions pyruvate is reduced by...
accepting electrons and protons, must be removed from NADH.
Products of pyruvate reduction are (anerobic and aerobic)
Aerobic: CO2
Anerobic: Ethanol, Lactate
In the absence of oxygen, pyruvate undergoes fermentation and regenerates:
Lactate is generated from the direct transfer of electrons from:
NADH to the carbobyl group of pyruvate.
What enzyme catalyses lactate?
Lactate Dehydrogenase
In alcoholic fermentation, pyruvate loses a carbon atom (CO2) to form:
the 2 Carbon compound acetaldeyde.
Acetaldehyde reduction by NADH makes

Define: Phosphorolysis
Phosphorolysis: Resembles hydrolysis but uses inorganic phosphate rather than water to break a chemical bond.
