Why does the conversion of pyruvate to ethanol allow glycolysis to proceed in the absence of oxygen? ( 3 points ). c. Would you expect that the equilibrium for the reaction glucose + ATP glucose-6- phosphate + ADP would strongly favor reactants, strongly favor products, or strongly favor neither? Briefly explain your answer. ( 4 points ). d. Use curved arrows to show the chemical mechanism for the enzyme-catalyzed conversion of glucose-6-phosphate to fructose-6-phosphate.
