Name: KEY EID: Extra Credit Homework #4 Complete questions below and hand in to a TA by the end of class, Friday September 23. 1. For each coenzyme listed in Table 6-2, provide the name and function and class (use Table 6-3) of an enzyme that requires the given coenzyme for catalytic activity. (The enzyme must be described within the Lehninger text.) Answers may vary. Examples: Biocytin - Pyruvate carboxylase; adds a carboxyl group onto pyruvate to form oxaloacetate in gluconeogenesis; 6. ligase Coenzyme A - Pyruvate dehydrogenase complex; catalyzes oxidative decarboxylation of pyruvate to generate acetyl-CoA for entry into the TCA cycle; 1. oxidoreductase 5’-Deoxyadenosylcobalamin (coenzyme B12) - Methylmalonyl-CoA mutase; interconverts methylmalonyl-CoA and succinyl-CoA in β oxidation; 5. isomerase Flavin adenine dinucleotide - Acyl-CoA dehydrogenases; oxidize fatty acyl-CoA molecules in β oxidation; 1. oxidoreductase Lipoate - Pyruvate dehydrogenase complex; catalyzes oxidative decarboxylation of pyruvate to generate acetyl-CoA for entry into the TCA cycle; 1. oxidoreductase Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide - Alcohol dehydrogenase; reduces acetaldehyde to ethanol in alcohol fermentation; 1. oxidoreductase
