units) into the nonsolvated core of the protein. The reduction in solvent-accessible area of these groups favors the folded state. An empirical correlation that appears to have predictive value also provides insight into the energetics of the hydrophobic effect. 12.7 The Nature of Metabolism 12.8 The Nature of Oxidation and Reduction 12.9 Coenzymes in Biological Important Oxidation-Reduction Reactions These three sections cover topics that were mostly covered in introductory biology. Review the concepts in the Key Terms list. Knowledge of the structures of nucleotides and coenzymes are not required at this point in Biochemistry I. 12.10 Coupling of Production and Use of Energy The first step in the glycolytic pathway is the phosphorylation of glucose to make glucose-6- phosphate: Glucose + ATP <=> ADP + G-6-P The reaction is catalyzed by the enzyme, hexokinase. Use the values in Table 12.1 (Campbell, p. 422) to calculate the following for the hexokinase reaction: 1. G°' 2. K eq 3. Will the above values be different in the cell, where the substrate and product concentrations are in the mM range? Compare your answers to those provided in lecture (on Monday). 9.13.04

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
