CH 339K Problem Set 1 1) Dihydroxyacetone phosphate (DHAP)and Glyceraldehyde-3-Phosphate (G3P) are both intermediates in the metabolic breakdown of glucose. They can be interconverted by the enzyme Triose Phosphate Isomerase . For the conversion of DHAP to G3P, G o = 7.5 kJ/mol a) Calculate Keq and the equilibrium fraction of G3P at 37 o C. b) What is G if [G3P] = 1/100 [DHAP]? 2) A Cl - ion is separated from a Na + ion by a distance of 0.5 nm.
