    I don't know any, but I found that just tracing the pathway helped me memorize it since. I'm a visual learning, so arrows and the structure and the sheet of paper I wrote on got stuck in my head.

    I got one for the substrates now, but it's not one that I would tell my mother :eek:

    Now I need one for the enzymes.

    Sorry - mnemonics wouldn't have helped me. I did the write-the-whole-pathway-out about 100 times to get everything down - structures, names, enzymes, activators, inactivators, mechanisms, energy... It's just too much for a mnemonic, I think. Of course, if anyone HAS a mnemonic, I sure could've used it a year ago! :) :)

    Already have one for that (well, at least for the substrates)

    If you know the substrates you should be able to figure out the enzyme names with little difficulty, I mean they're not exactly difficult or unrelated. I haven't studied biochem in years but I can remember the first few because I know the first few substrates.

    Why do you need a seperate one for the enzymes and substrates? If you know one, you know the other, right? I don't say this to be condescending. If you know one substrate, and the one that follows it, think of what type of enzyme will change it from step one to step two, and name it accordingly.

    Who needs ot memorize this anyways? Wont be on the mcat like this. they may give you the pathway. I think i had to memorize it for my biochem exam but you really have a few steps to pay attention to. The first 3, substrate phosphorylation(i think that is what it was called). then the split step... then ignore the rest until the last 2 steps. Then u'r done!

    know the regulation steps: ie first 3 and last one.

    if you think and study the chemistry, the names of the enzymes fall into the place. The only one that doesn't is pyruvate kinase, so all you have to do is study the exception.

    Well played :clap::claps::clap::claps:.

    Mnemonics for complex biochem pathways will be fun to know.

    I always sucked at mnemonics. I either memorize the material straight out or it doesn't stick.

    Usually, I would question bumps, but nice job. Awesome mnemonic.

    If I recall correctly (it's been a few years), I remember always associating the "kinase" enzymes with an added phosphate group.....

    It should've been locked long time back when someone decided to bump a 7-year thread for no reason.

    Slight misnomer - sometimes the forward reaction enzyme is named for the backwards one (like phosphoglycerate kinase). Go figure why they decided to make it even more confusing.
