Unformatted text preview: Step 7 : A phosphate group is removed from each 1,3-bisphosphoglycerate to make two ATP and 3-phosphoglycerate. This reaction is mediated by the enzyme phospho-glycerokinase. This reaction is an example of substrate level phosphorylation . A phosphate group was removed from a substrate molecule and added to ADP to make ATP. Step 8 : The remaining phosphate group is transferred to the middle carbon by the enzyme phosphoglyceromutase. This reaction will energize the molecule and make it less stable. 2-phosphoglycerate results. www.thinkwell.com [email protected] Copyright © 2000, Thinkwell Corp., All Rights Reserved. 1199bio92 Step 9 : A water molecule is removed and a double bond is added to both 2-phosphoglycerate molecules to produce two phosphoenolpyruvate (also known as PEP) molecules. Step 10 : Both PEP molecules are dephosphorylated by pyruvate kinase to produce two pyruvates and two ATP....
