Problem Set 5 1) Is the Phosphofructokinase reaction in muscle more or less exergonic than under standard conditions, given the following concentrations: 2) In your secret room in the back of the house, you make wine that is 10% w/v EtOH. What molar concentration of glucose (or equivalent) would be required for this to occur, given the fermentation reaction of yeast to recover NADH from pyruvate? The molecular weight of ethanol is about 46 g/mol. 3) Which carbons of glucose, catabolized through glycolysis and the Krebs cycle, will be lost most rapidly as CO 2 ? 4) Calculate G o ' for the oxidation of malate by malate dehydrogenase in the Krebs’ Cycle: Malate + NAD+ ¾ Oxaloacetate + NADH + H+ Standard reduction potentials for the half-reactions are below. 5) What would G o ' be for an enzyme that oxidizes succinate with NAD

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
