Unformatted text preview: NAD even though there is an oxidation step in their glycolytic pathway. Explain fully why this statement is true. 5. The following reaction occurs in glycolysis: H C O HCOH H C OH C-OH H-C C=O H OH A I B What type of reaction is this (as a whole)? Explain. 6. It could be said that the reaction phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) to pyruvate drives the reaction that converts glucose to glucose-six-phosphate. a. Explain that statement b. When thought of in these terms, is this an efficient system. (That is, is available energy used productively?) Note that on the exam you would be given a chart showing glycolysis. 7. The reaction labeled number 8 in the chart of glycolysis distributed at the exam could be described as either of two of the reaction types that are common in glycolysis. a. Name those two and list the other reactions in the scheme shown that fall into each of those two categories. b. Of the reactions you have listed, which is reaction 8 most like? Explain...
