Unformatted text preview: 1 Pentose Phosphate Pathway Lecture 22 Chapter 14, Section 6 Fates of Glucose-6P Glucose Glucose-6P Fructose-6P Fructose-1,6-BP Pentose-P Glycogen Pentose Phosphate Pathway Also called Pentose Phosphate Shunt, hexose monophosphate pathway, phosphogluconate pathway. Purposes: to generate pentose-phosphates ( e.g. Ribose-5P) for nucleotides, cofactors, for dividing cells. To generate NADPH for biosynthetic reactions (e.g. fatty acid or cholesterol synthesis), mainly in liver, adipose, mammary gland, adrenal cortex. NADPH provides e- (reducing power) for biosynthetic reactions Allows for two pools of e- carriers in the same cellular compartment (cytosol) but for different purposes (catabolic) (anabolic) 2 Three Stages Stage 1: Oxidative reactions, yielding 2 NADPH and one pentose-5P. Stage 2: Isomerization and epimerization, interconverting pentose-Ps. Stage 3: Non-oxidative reactions: rearrangements to convert three pentose-P (15C) to two fructose-6P and GAP (15C). Note: cells can do one or all stages depending on needs....
