Unformatted text preview: o glucose 6-phosphate by the enzyme hexokinase. • Consumes one molecule of ATP. • The negative charge of the phosphates traps glucose inside of the cell. Steps of glycolysis • • • • Conversion of glucose 6-phosphate to fructose 6-phosphate. Begins with isomerization of glucose 6-phosphate to an open form. Phosphoglucose isomerase moves the carbonyl oxygen from carbon 1 to carbon 2. Fructose 6-phosphate can close to form a 5-carbon ring. Steps of glycolysis • • • Fructose 6-phosphate is phosphorylated by phosphofructokinase to form fructose 1,6-bisphosphate Consumes one molecule of A...
