Functions of the Pentose Phosphate Shunt 1. Generation of NADPH 2. Formation of Pentose sugars 3. Conversion of C 4 and C 5 sugars to C 6 sugars for glycolytic/ oxidative metabolism ( e.g. 6 C 6 5 C 6 ) 4. Some aspects of pathway serve in glucose synthesis from CO 2 in plants and photosynthetic microorganisms. 5. C 4 sugars serve as precursors in aromatic amino acid biosynthesis in plants and microorganisms.
