• 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
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...
