  6. ·         The glycolytic pathway is common to virtally all cells and comprises two stages

    Explain stage 1
    trapping and prep phase; no ATP generation
  7. How does stage one begin?
    §  Begins with conversion of glucose into fructose 1,6-bisphosphate, which has three steps: phosphorylation, isomerization, and another phosphorylation
  8. What is the strategy of step one?
    §  Strategy is to trap glucose in the cell and form a compound that can be cleaved into phosphorylated three-carbon units
  9. How is stage one completed?
    §  Completed with cleavage of fructose 1,6-bisphosphate into two three-carbon fragments, which are readily interconvertible 
  10. What is stage 2 of glycolysis?
    o   Stage 2: ATP is harvested when the three-carbon fragments are oxidized to pyruvate
  11. ·         Glucose enters cells through __ and is phosphorylated by ATP to form __, which is notable for two reasons:
    o   Reason one? 
    o   Reason two? 
    specific transport phrteins

    glucose 6-phosphate

    Glucose 6-phosphate cannot pass through the membrane because it is not a substrate for the glucose transporters

    The addition of the phosphoryl group acts to destabilize glucose, thus facilitating its further metabolism
  12. ·         The transfer of the phosphoryl group from ATP to the hydroxyl group on carbon 6 of glucose is catalyzed by __; t requires __ for activity, which forms a complex with __
    o   The binding of glucose induces a __ in the enzyme. __has __, which do what when glucose is bound
    • hexokinase
    • Mg or another divalent metal ion
    • ATP

    • large conformational change in
    • Hexokinase 
    • two lobes
    • move toward each other
  13. §  On glucose binding, one lobe __ with respect to the other, resulting in movements of the __
    §  The __between the lobes __, and the bound glucose becomes surrounded by __,e xcept for the __, which will accept the __ from __
    §  The closing of the cleft in hexokinase is an example of __
    • rotates 12 degrees
    • polypeptide backbone of as much as 8 angstroms
    • cleft 
    • closes
    • protein
    • hydroxyl group of carbon 6
    • phosphoryl group
    • ATP
    • induced fit
  14. o   These changes that hexokinase undergoes are significant for two reasons:

    Reason 1?
    §  First, the environment around the glucose becomes more nonpolar, which favors reaction between the hydrophilic hydroxyl group of glucose and the terminal phosphoryl group of ATP
  15. o   These changes that hexokinase undergoes are significant for two reasons:

    Reason 2?
    • §  Second, the conformational changes enable the kinase to discriminate against H2O as a substrate; closing the cleft keeps water away from the active site
    • ·         A rigid kinase would be an ATPase as well
  16. __ is a general future of kinases.
    o   Substrate-induced cleft closing is a general feature of kinases
  17. ·         The second step is the __, which is a conversion of an __into a __.
    o   The reaction catalyzed by __ takes seeral steps due to the necessity to __, __, and __.

  19. Fructose 1, 6 bisphosphate is cleaved into __ and __, completing stage 1 of glycolysis, catalyzed by aldolase

    o __can move on to the next step, but __cannot; and so, it is isomerized by __, which is rapid and reversible.

    • capture energy via ATP
  21. ·         LOOK CLOSER: Triose phosphate isomerase catalyzes the__. The isomerization of a __ into an __ proceeds through an __
    o   __ plays the role of a __: it does what from C1 and donates it to C2. But, the carboxylate group of glutamate 165 by itself is not basic enough to __; assisted by __, which does what to stabilize the negative charge that develops on the C2 carbonyl group

  22. ·         Features of TPI
    o   Displays great catalytic prowess (isomerizes by 1010); catalysis takes place every time the __; __is rate limiting; it is a __
