about how to breakdown glycerol in Aerobic Respiration

Post by whitebear36 » Wed Aug 17, 2005 12:55 pm

First, I am a thai student. So, that sometimes my question or clause maybe made u is not understand.

So, my question is "In Aerobic Respiration, what is glycerol break down to and How?

If u dont want to complain to long link the web for me

thank you!

glycerol can be metabolized to dihydroxyacetonphosphate (first a phosphate is attached by glycerolkinase and then oxidized by glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase), an intermediate in the glycolysis.

The, because of the aerobic respration, the pyruvate will participate in the Krebs-cycle.

I wonder how dihydroxyacetonphosphate change into an

intermediate in the glycolysis

Do you know any metabolism?

triosephosphate-isomerase converts dihydroxyacetonphosphate into glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate. Both are intermediates in the glycolysis

Here is a link from wikipedia for you to try to understand the steps better. Hope it helps:

Sorry! for my poor knowledge

Now! I know more about metabolism beacause of my teacher have

just teach me last Friday
