183 C H A P T E R 15 PENTOSE PHOSPHATE PATHWAY PENTOSE PHOSPHATE PATHWAY Function: To supply reducing equivalents for biosynthesis (NADPH) and pentoses for DNA and RNA bio- synthesis. Location: Everywhere. Connections: To glycolysis and glycogen through glucose 6-phos- phate . Shares some enzymes with glycolysis. To DNA-RNA synthesis through ribose 5-phosphate . Regulation: NADPH inhibits. NADP 1 activates. High glucose 6-phosphate activates. EQUATIONS: Making NADPH: 3 Glucose 6-P 1 6NADP 1 ¡ 2 fructose 6-P 1 glyceraldehyde 3-P 1 3CO 2 1 6NADPH 1 6H 1 Making ribose 5-P: Glucose 6-P 1 2NADP 1 ¡ ribose 5-P 1 CO 2 1 2NADPH 1 2H 1

184 Basic Concepts in Biochemistry The hexose monophosphate pathway has several names just to con- fuse you. It’s called the hexose monophosphate shunt or pathway (HMP shunt or pathway), or the pentose phosphate pathway, or the phospho- gluconate pathway (Fig. 15-1). The pathway in its full form is compli-
