Metabolism - glycosidic bonds p 302 - 330 Glycosidic bonds: link sugars together Starch and glycogen: - α -linkages -leaves many H-bonds unsatisfed -soluble in water (water Fulflls unused H-bonding sites) cellulose: - β -linkages -good intramolecular H-bonds -insoluble in water

Metabolism - phosphoglucomutase p 302 - 330 In most cells: -breakdown of glycogen stops at G-6-P -G-6-P then enters glycolysis In liver: -G-6-P is hydrolyzed to glucose -glucose can then enter bloodstream -delivery and uptake by other cells

Glycolysis - overview Glucose is taken into cytosol where glycolytic enzymes live Two stages of glycolysis: 1. Reactions 1 to 5 Glucose --> G-3-P (requires 2 ATPs) 2. Reactions 6 to 10 G-3-P --> pyruvate (yields 4 ATP) Net yield = 2ATP + 2 NADH If aerobic, 2NADH --> 6ATP If anaerobic, 2NADH --> heat
