What are the Fate of Pyruvate Molecule after Glycolysis: Pyruvate Dehydrogenase

What are the Fate of Pyruvate Molecules after Glycolysis

Glycolysis is taking place in Cytoplasm. So Pyruvate is generated in Cytoplasm. This is to be transports into mitochondria by a Pyruvate transporter. It is a simport, where the hydrogen ion is... Read more »

Why Gluconeogenesis is very Important? (Simple Notes)

Gluconeogenesis is the process of synthesizing glucose from non-carbohydrate sources. Gluconeogenesis occurs mainly in liver. Gluconeogenesis occurs to a more limited extent in the kidney and small intestine under some conditions. Definition... Read more »
Hexose MonoPhosphate shunt

Hexose MonoPhosphate Shunt and its Significance (HMP Shunt)

The Hexose MonoPhosphate Shunt is also known as “Pentose phosphate Pathway” (PPP). This is alternative Glucose oxidation pathway. The hexose monophosphate pathway is used for production of NADPH from NADP. The NADPH is required  for ... Read more »
Basic Overview of Carbohydrate Metabolism

Basic Overview of Carbohydrate Metabolism

Carbohydrate metabolism denotes the various biochemical processes responsible for the formation, breakdown and interconversion of carbohydrates in living organisms. The most important carbohydrate is glucose, a simple sugar (monosaccharide) that is metabolized... Read more »
Glycogenesis: Glycogen Synthesis Process

Glycogenesis: How to Synthesize Glycogen

“Synthesis of Glycogen from Glucose is called GLYCOGENESIS. It takes place in the Cytosol and requires ATP and UTP, besides Glucose.” The goal of glycolysis, glycogenolysis, and the citric acid cycle is... Read more »
