In gluconeogenesis, most steps involve the same enzymes utilized by glycolysis. Three steps require different enzymes. Name one of these steps and indicate why it needs a different enzyme. The three steps are Glucose-6-Phosphate to Glucose, Fructose 1,6- bisphosphate to Fructose-6-phosphate and pyruvate to PEP. In each case the reverse of the glycolytic reaction would not supply enough energy to recreate the starting reactants. For example, G-6-P hydrolysis does not provide enough energy to make glucose and ATP. 5. Phosphorylation can change the shape of a protein. Indicate one amino acid that can be phosphorylated. serine or threonine or tyrosine 6.
