- Please note: the overhead describing
the class I aldolase mechanism should have indicated a Tyr residue
functioning as a general acid-base instead of a Cys and His residue.
Fig 16-9 in your book is correct. Thank you Springfield students
for pointing this out in class.
- Fermentation: the anaerobic fate of
pyruvate, homolactic fermentation, alcoholic fermentation, energetics
of fermentation (PDF p. 13, VV p. 464, Figs 16-24, 16-25,
PDF p. 14, VV Figs 16-26, 16-27, 16-28, 16-30, 16-31)
- Control of metabolic flux, flux generation,
control of glycolysis in muscle (PDF pp. 15, 16, VV Table
16-1, PDF p. 17, VV Fig 16-33, Table 16-2, PDF pp. 18*,
- Please note: the overhead referring
to p.18* of the PDF file has a misprint. The product of the FBPase
reaction is fructose-6-phosphate. The PDF file has been updated
to reflect this correction.
