Phosphofructokinase (PFK-1) – F-6-P F-1,6 bis P Glycogen (starch) Phosphorylase (or phosphorylase is OK) – Uses Pi to break bonds in glycogen, leaves for sugars on branch Debranching enzyme – glucanotransferase activity (breaks ¾ sugars) + alpha 1,6 glucosidase activity (breaks last ¼ sugar on branch) Sucrase – Glucose and fructose Lactase – Glucose and galactose (C4) Maltase – Glucose and glucose PDH complex (or pyruvate dehydrogenase) Pyruvate carboxylase – adds carboxy group, requires biotin Glycogen synthase
