What does fructose 1,6 biphosphate then split into? dihydroxyacetone phosphate, glyceraldehyde 3 phosphate
Can DHAP and G3P be interconverted to one another? Yes
What is the product of the final reversible reactions? Phosphoenolpyruvate
What enzyme convertes phosphoenolpyruvate to pyruvate? Pyruvate kinase
What tissue upregulates pyruvate kinase with insulin, and inhibits it with glucagon? liver
What tissue does not regulate pyruvate kinase activity? muscle
How does formation of NADH occur in glycolysis? Reduction of NAD+
What must occur before glycolysis to continue? Oxidation of the NADH back to NAD+
What are the two main ways of regenerating the NAD+? Donation of an NADH electron to the electron transport change (oxidative phosphorylation), lactase dehydrogenase reaction (important for anaerobic tissues)
What must pyruvate be converted to to be used for aerobic ATP production? acetyl CoA
What enzyme catalyzes the change from pyruvate to acetyl CoA? pyruvate dehydrogenase
Where does this process occur and is it reversible? mitochondria, no
What does pyruvate dehydrogenase control? flow of pyruvate into the TCA cycle
What does the mechanism of regulation by pyruvate dehydrogenase complex involve? phosphorylation/dephosphorylation of PDH
What is the PDH activated and inhibited by? Activated by substrates, ADP, and calcium. Inhibited by products and ATP
What does exercising muscle cause? Elevated calcium and ADP levels
What does elevated calcium and ADP levels encourage? The production of acetyl CoA from pyruvate only if the tissue is well oxygenated.
What are the substrates and products of the TCA cycle? Carbons from acetyl CoA are oxidized to produce CO2, NADH, FADH2
What are the NADH and FADH2 reoxidized through oxidative phosphorylation to produce? ATP
What is the TCA cycle required to generate ATP from? ketones, fatty acids, alcohol, amino acids
What occurs in the first step of the TCA cycle? Oxaloacetate condenses with acetyl CoA to form citrate
Is the oxaloacetate recycled? Yes
What is the key rate limiting enzyme of the TCA cycle? isocitrate deydrogenase
What is isocitrate dehydrogenase stimulated and inhibited by? Stimulated by ADP and calcium, inhibited by NADH
What is the citrate intermediate used for? Fatty acid synthesis
What is the succinyl CoA intermediate required for? Synthesis of heme
What enzyme catalyzes the synthesis of oaloacetate from pyruvate? pyruvate carboxylase
Can acetyl CoA cross the mitochondrial membrane? No
What is acetyl CoA converted to so it can cross the mitochondrial membrane to the cytosol? Citrate
What is the citrate in the cytosol converted into so it can be used to make fatty acids? acetyl CoA
What is PFK-1 in the liver controlled by? Inhibited by ATP and citrate, activated by AMP
Which enzyme in the liver can override the signal to shut down PFK-1 in the liver? PFK-2
What does PFK-2 do? converts some of the fructose 6-phosphate formed in glycolysis to fructose 2,6 biphosphate

What is glycogen phosphorylase stimulated and inhibited by? Stimulated by glucagon and epi, inhibited by insulin
Does muscle have glucagon receptors? No

What do slow twitch muscle fibers have a high capacity for? Aerobic metabolism

What is myoglobin? Similar to hemoglobin, but only has one subunit and can only bind one oxygen.
Why are slow twitch muscles resistant to fatigue? myoglobin can serve as an oxygen store
