(4 pts) Given below are pairs of reactants and products (the stoichiometry is not necessarily complete or balanced). Use your general understanding of thermodynamics, chemical reactions and metabolism to predict if the reactions as written ( ! ) are thermodynamically favorable (- ! G o ’) or unfavorable (+ ! G o ’) under standard conditions. Circle the correct answer (1 pt for each reaction). Reactants Products Standard Free Energy Change ( ! G o ’) ADP, Pi ATP, H 2 O positive negative Succinyl-CoA, H 2 O Succinate, Coenzyme A positive negative Phosphoenolpyruvate, ADP Pyruvate, ATP positive negative H 2 O H 2, O 2 positive negative 2. (18 pts) The first reaction of the TCA cycle is catalyzed by the enzyme citrate synthase (CS). The ! G o ’ for this reaction is – 32.2 kJ mol -1 . a) Write the CS-catalyzed reaction (do not draw structures, use words or common abbreviations) (2 pts)
