You should be able to tell “full” names of the metabolites/enzymes/processes that are
often abbreviated as follows:
: GA3P, PEP, PG, 1,3-BPG, DHAP, OAA, Q,
KG, Glu, Asp, Gln, Asn.
: MCAD, GA3PDH, PDC, PFK, MDH.
: TCA cycle, PMF, PPP, ETC
Draw structures of NAD
, NADH, NADP
, NADPH. What are their functions?
REMEMBER THAT ALL OF THEM ARE
Draw TCA cycle with i) structures and names of the intermediates, and ii) the names of
the enzymes. Explain the significance of each step (i.e., oxidation, hydration,
.). Use the “cycle” you draw to explain how each of the two carbon
molecules in the acetate-group is released as CO
The mechanism of the reaction catalyzed by succinyl CoA synthetase.
A difference between two types of dehydrogenases – one releases electrons to NAD
another to [FAD]. Two examples each for them.
Two functions of citrate other than its function as the precursor to isocitrate. You should
also know that citrate has to be exported to the cytoplasm to play those functions.
