Unformatted text preview: IN PRAISE OF GLYCOLYSIS (TUNE:THE BRITISH GRENADIERS) O bje c t 1 The British Grenadiers Midi (Music only) The British Grenadiers MP3 (Music & Lyrics) Some pathways lead to glory, like Hatch and Slack and Knoop, Utter, Calvin, Cori -- a most distinguished group, But of all of nature's pathways, we sing the praise today Of Embden, Meyerhof, Parnas -- the glycolytic way. Glucose, by hexokinase is turned to G6P (You might use glucokinase, you must use ATP) And, note, glycogenolysis (when stores are in the cell) Gives G1P which then mutates to G6P as well. The moiety of glucose, in the succeeding phase Is transferred to a ketose by an isomerase Phosphofructokinase now, acts on that F6P; Fructose 1,6 bisphosphate is the product that's set free. The kinase is effected quite complicatedly And as you'll have suspected it uses ATP; FBP by aldolase is split reversibly To phosphoglyceraldehyde, also DHAP....
