    SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads)
    Does anyone know if we need to memorize the intermediates for both of these processes? I'm struggling just to learn them let alone memorize the intermediates

    You mean the intermediates like Oxaloacetoacetate and citric acid and etc.. No way do you need to know that its a DAT not a biochem test on Glycolysis. Just know what happens and what is created and you should be good i think.

    I think you should know basics like OAA, citric acid, G3P etc...but you don't need to know each and every enzyme, intermediate structure etc. Definitely know how many NADH, FADH2, ATP are produced/used during each step.

    know major concepts of each pathway

    ex:

    glycolysis: occurs in cytosol starting rxt is glucose which yeilds 2 pyruvate (1 six carbon goes to 2 3 carbons)

    this process is anarobic

    the net ATP yeild is 2, your gross ATP yeild is 4 but it costs 2 to prime the reaction so you end up with 2 ATP...you also generate 2 NADH but since these are outside the mitochandria transporting them in yeilds 1 less ATP per NADH then normal (normally you get 3 ATP per NADH but from the NADH generated in glycolysis you get 2ATP)

    and know the rate limiting step, generation of 2,4 bisphosphofructose

    also know PEP is an ultra high enegy molecule that should cover you for glycolysis

    Know that gluconeogenesis is NOT the reverse of glycolysis its close but you have to use 2 phosphotases to cleave off instead of kinases that put on!!!!




    I'll draw up a biochem guide later on it will be good pratice =)

    LMAO you really are funny. Where did you pick this up. I took biochem and i never learn any of these funny nmemonics.
