  1. ·         Pyruvate can have three fates: conversion into __, __, or __
    o   The first two are __that take place in the __; a __is an ATP-generating process in which organic compounds act both as the __ and __
    o   in the presence of oxygen, pyruvate is metabolized to __ and __ through the __ and __ with __being the final elecftron acceptor
    • ethanol, lactate, or CO2
    • fermentations 
    • absence of oxygen
    • fermentation 
    • donor and as the acceptor of electrons
    • carbon dioxide and water'CAC and the ETC
    • oxygen

    o   First step: __
    o   Second step: __
    • decarboxylation of pyruvate catalyzed by pyruvate decarboxylase, which requires the coenzyme thiamine pyrophosphate
    • reduction of acetaldehyde to ethanol by NADH catalyzed by alcohol dehydrogenase, regenerating NAD+
  3. o   the __ion is important; it lies in the __ and does what to favor the __
    o   NADH generated by the __ is consumed in the __

    • reduction of acetaldehyde to ethanol
  4. ·         Second fate: lactate is formed from pyruvate in a variety of microorganisms in a process called __; takes place when __; catalyzed by __
    o   There is no net __. The NADH formed in the __  is consumed in the reduction of pyruvate
    o   The regeneration of NAD+ in the __sustains the continued process of glycolysis under anaerobic conditions
    • lactic acid fermentation

    ·         __yield only a fraction of the energy available from the complete combustion of glucose. Yet, it is useful because __; and, living organisms, such as oblicate anaerobes, can produce energy without it
    • CAC and the ETC
    • acetyl CoA
    • oxidative decarboxylation of pyruvate

    • Fermentations 
    • oxygen is not required
  6. ·         The three dehydrogenases—__(3)__—have different structures. But, their __ are similar

    glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate dehydrogenase, alcohol dehydrogenase, and lactate dehydrogenase

    • NAD+-binding domains
    • four alpha helices and a sheet of six parallel beta strands
  7. §  Moreover, in all cases, the bound __ displays nearly the same conformation; it is called the __ and represents  __ that recurs in the __of glycolysis and other enzymes because of their descent from a common ancestor
    • NAD+
    • Rossmann fold
    • primordial dinucleotide-binding domain
    • dehydrogenases

    ·         Step 1: __of fructose to __ by __
    ·         Step 2: split into __and __ catalyzed by __
    o   __is then phosphorylated to __, a glycolytic intermediate, by __
