Unformatted text preview: o Adjustments according to cell requirements: • when both ribose-5-P and NADPH are required • oxidative part of pentose pathway dominates & ribose-5-P and NADPH are used for biosynthesis (no C to glycolysis) • when more ribose-5-P than NADPH is required • fruct-6-P and glycrealdehyde-3-P from glycolysis are fed into non-oxidative part of pentose P pathway (runs in reverse to make ribose-5-P w/ no generation of NADPH; no C to glycolysis) • when more NADPH than ribose-5-P is required • rxns o 6 glu-6-P + 12 NADP + 6 ribose-5-P + 12 NADPH + 6 CO 2 (pentose pathway) o 6 ribose-5-P 4 fruct-6-P + 2 glyceraldehyde-3-P o 4 fruct-6-P + 2 glyceraldehyde-3-P 5 glu-6-P (gluconeogensis) • net rxn: glu-6-P + 12 NADP + 6 CO 2 + 12 NADPH • when both NADPH and ATP are needed, but ribose-5-P isn’t • like above, except fruct-6-P & glyceraldehyde-3-P are fed into glycolysis to make ATP...
