Draw an arrow mechanism with intermediates for the PLP catalyzed removal of nitrogen from aspartate. (You don‘t have to draw full arrow mechanisms for imine formation and hydrolysis. It is ok to draw an abbreviated form of PLP, but you need to draw the whole electron . sink.)

(24pts) Answer two of the following questions. Clearly mark the ones you are answering. A. Although the degradation of the branched chain amino acids valine, leucine, and isoleucine are mechanistically similar, one is ketogenic, one is glucogenic, and one is both. Draw degradation pathways (intermediates) for the ketogenic and glucogenic degradations. Use the pathways to explain how mechanistically similar pathways can lead to different classifications. B. Draw histidine, and indicate in which metabolite each carbons ends up. Provide a degradation pathway that shows how these metabolites form. Include any necessary cofactors or cosubstrates. C. Draw the urea cycle with structures of all intermediates, including incorporation of ammonia into the cycle. Explain how this process typically clears ammonia from the body. Also explain how argininosuccinase deficiency can be treated by a low protein/high arginine diet. D. Threonine can be directly deaminated, leading to a citric acid cycle metabolite. Provide a pathway from threonine to this citric acid metabolite, including cofactors needed in each transformation. sudbmd Pm Mdfifmadfiié’) 8. (8 pts extra credit) The degradation of tyrosine results in the intermediate drawn below. A dioxygenase catalyzes the formation of a straight-chain intermediate through the cleaving of the indicated bond. This straight-chain intermediate can be hydrolyzed to common metabolic intermediates. Draw the structure of the straight chain intermediate and the hydrolysis products. Based on the hydrolysis products, is tyrosine ketogenic, glucogenic, or both? HO 9. (10pts extra credit) Thebiosynthesis of cysteine involves the PLP-catalyzed gamma- elimination of cystathionine (shown below.) A. Cystathionine can be made from the conjugationof what two sets of compounds? B. Draw an arrow mechanism for the gamma-elimination of cystathionine. C.
