1 Regulation of Carbohydrate Metabolism Lecture 33 Chapters 14-4, 15-4C Regulation depends on the purpose of a pathway • Pathways for synthesis and degradation are separate, allowing reciprocal regulation: – Glycolysis/Gluconeogenesis – Glycogen breakdown/Glycogen synthesis • Purpose of carbohydrate metabolism is different depending on cell type. Carbohydrate metabolism in muscle • Goal: – Metabolize glucose for own energy needs. – Store glucose for own needs. • Regulation based on Energy State of individual cells Energy State of Cell • High energy state has high ratios of: – ATP/ADP + AMP – NADH/NAD+ – Acetyl-CoA/CoA • High energy state activates glycogen synthesis. • Low energy state activates glycogen breakdown.

2 Regulation in Muscle. Breaks down glycogen for rapid bursts of energy - ATP, G6P + AMP, Epinephrine - Epinephrine Epinephrine (adrenaline): “Fight or Flight” hormone. Catecholamine (derived from Tyr). Made in adrenal cortex. Leads to production of cAMP. Levels of cAMP controlled by relative activities of adenylate cyclase and cAMP phosphodiesterase: + Epinephrine Protein Kinase A • Also called cAMP-dependent protein kinase. • Heterotetramer: – 2 Regulatory subunits (R) bind cAMP – 2 Catalytic subunits (C) phosphorylate target proteins • Activated by cAMP: R 2 C 2 + 4 cAMP <=> 2 C + R 2 (cAMP) 4 (inactive) (active)
