Glycolysis Problems Problem : What two types of reactions does glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase catalyze in the fifth step of glycolysis? Solution for Problem 1 >> Glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase first oxidizes and then phosphorylates glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate. Problem : What is the name of the enzyme that catalyzes the reaction that converts 1,3 bisphoglycerate to 3-phosphoglycerate? Solution for Problem 2 >> Phosphoglycerate kinase. Problem : How many molecules of ATP are produced during the second stage of glycolysis? Solution for Problem 3 >> There are four ATP molecules are produced during the second stage of glycolysis. They are
