MCB 100B Problem Set: Energetics and ATP 1. The structure of ATP explains why its hydrolysis has such a large negative free energy. Explain. 2. It has been argued that the use of ATP rather than Pi in the phosphorylation of glucose to G6P is required for the achievement of a negative Δ G for the reaction that splits fructose-bis-phosphate. a. Why is a negative Δ G for the reaction splitting Fru-1,6-P an issue? b. Is this argument valid? Explain. 3. What is the distinction between standard free energy change and free energy change and what does each tell us about a given reaction or pathway. 4. Reactions involving oxidation/reduction of metabolic intermediates share features with reactions involving phosphorylation / dephosphorylation of metabolic intermediates. a. Each such reaction usually involves a small molecule that serves as a “carrier” of one or a group of atoms. In each case, name the “carrier”, show its structure (use detailed structure of only the part that is involved in the reaction, use names of groups to show the other components of the molecule), and draw the structure of the groups that are carried by the “carrier”.

    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.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
