Binding energy resulting from the bidning of phosphate groups to enzymes helps lower the activation energy and ncrese the specificity Regulation occurs through hormones and glycolytic enzymes 14.2 Feeder Pathways for Glycolysis many carbohydrates besides glucose meet their catabolic fate in glycolysis i.e. polysaccharides, glycogen and starch, and disaccharides glycogen and starch can be broken down by glycogen phosphorylase by attacking the α14 glycosidic bond there are several ways to produce glyceraldehyde 3- phosphate fructokinase catalyzes the Phosphorylation of fructose at C- 1 broken down into dihydroxyacetone phosphate and glyceraldehyde glyceraldehyde is phosphorylated by triose kinase to form glyceraldehyde 3- phosphate 14.3 Fates of Pyruvate under Anaerobic Conditions: Fermentation NAD+ is necessary as an electron acceptor Reoxidizes by donating i...
