Glycolysis and Fermentation Pre-Section Assignment Please choose at least one of the four sets of questions below to answer. Be prepared to discuss your answers in section. We encourage you to choose a set that you find challenging to best help you learn topics you find difficult. Of course, you are more than welcome (and encouraged) to answer more than one set of questions – the more practice, the better! A. Energy Investment Phase: 1. How many ATP are invested? 2.What is the name of the enzyme that first phosphorylates glucose? 3. Why is it important that glucose is phosphorylated? B. The Split: 1. How many carbons are in each of the subunits formed by “the split”?

Unformatted text preview: 2. Why would the cell benefit from isomerizing (shuffling around the atoms of) one carbon subunit so that it is identical to the other carbon subunit? C. Energy Harnessing Phase: 1. How many ATP are harnessed (released) in this phase? 2. What is the net ATP gain from glycolysis? 3. In this phase, which molecules are oxidized? Which molecules are reduced? D. Fermentation (follows glycolysis under anaerobic conditions): 1. What is the function of fermentation? 2. What are the products of fermentation? (Hint: there are two ways fermentation can occur) 3. In fermentation, which molecules are oxidized? Which are reduced?...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
