Glycolysis steps

For each molecule, describe what happens to it in Glycolysis

Glucose Enters Glycolysis and is phosphorylated. 1 ATP is invested. Becomes Glucose 6-Phospate
Glucose 6-Phosphate Is modified by Phosphoglucoisomerase into Fructose 6-Phosphate
Fructose 6-Phosphate Is phosphorylated making it Fructose 1,6-diphosphate. One ATP is invested.
Fructose 1,6-diphosphate Is cleaved into two 3 carbon molecules each with one Phosphate group: Dihydroxyacetone Phosphate and Glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate.
Dihydroxyacetone Phosphate Gets converted into Glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate by an enzyme called isomerase so that it can enter the next phase of Glycolysis - the energy conserving stage.
Glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate (2 Molecules) Is oxydized - transfers H+ to NAD+. Obtains a high energy phosphate bond making it 1,3 diphosphoglyceric acid. (Remember! This rxn is X2!)
1,3-diphosphoglyceric acid (2 Molecules) The high energy phosphate bond is removed from the 1st Carbon - producing ATP. 3-phosphoglyceric acid remains.
3-phosphoglyceric acid (2 molecules) is modified by an enzyme that moves the P group to the 2nd carbon making 2-phosphoglyceric acid.
2-phosphoglyceric acid (2 molecules) loses a H20 molecule. The P group becomes a high energy bond - making Phosphoenolpyruvic Acid.
Phosphoenolpyruvic Acid (2 molecules) The high energy phosphate bond is broken and the P group is transferred to ADP making ATP. Pyruvic Acid is formed
Pyruvic Acid (2 molecules) Pyruvic Acid is free to enter the Krebs Cycle/Citric Acid Cycle.

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
