  2. Chapter 27 Specific Catabolic Pathways: Carbohydrate, Lipid, and Protein Metabolism

  3. Glycolysis • Glycolysis:a series of 10 enzyme-catalyzed reactions by which glucose is oxidized to two molecules of pyruvate • there is net conversion of 2ADP to 2ATP

  4. Glycolysis - Rexn 1 • reaction 1:phosphorylation of -D-glucose

  5. Glycolysis - Rexn 2 • reaction 2:isomerization of glucose 6-phosphate to fructose 6-phosphate

  6. Glycolysis - Rexn 2 • this isomerization is most easily seen by considering the open-chain forms of each monosaccharide; it is one keto-enol tautomerism followed by another

  7. Glycolysis - Rexn 3 • reaction 3: phosphorylation of fructose 6-phosphate

  8. Glycolysis - Rexn 4 • reaction 4:cleavage of fructose 1,6-bisphosphate to two triose phosphates

  9. Glycolysis - Rexn 5 • reaction 5: isomerization of triose phosphates • catalyzed by phosphotriose isomerase • reaction involves two successive keto-enol tautomerizations • only the D enantiomer of glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate is formed

  10. Glycolysis - Rexn 6 • Reaction 6: oxidation of the -CHO group of D-glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate • the product contains a phosphate ester and a high-energy mixed carboxylic-phosphoric anhydride

  11. Glycolysis - Rexn 7 • Reaction 7: transfer of a phosphate group from 1,3-bisphosphoglycerate to ADP

  12. Glycolysis - Rexn 8 & 9 • Reaction 8: isomerization of 3-phosphoglycerate to 2-phosphoglycerate • Reaction 9: dehydration of 2-phosphoglycerate

  13. Glycolysis - Rexn 10 • Reaction 10: phosphate transfer to ADP

  14. Glycolysis • Summing these 10 reactions gives the net equation for glycolysis

  15. Reactions of Pyruvate • Pyruvate is most commonly metabolized in one of three ways, depending on the type of organism and the presence or absence of O2

  16. Reactions of Pyruvate • A key to understanding the biochemical logic behind two of these reactions of pyruvate is to recognize that glycolysis needs a continuing supply of NAD+ • if no oxygen is present to reoxidize NADH to NAD+, then another way must be found to reoxidize it

  17. Pyruvate to Lactate • in vertebrates under anaerobic conditions, the most important pathway for the regeneration of NAD+ is reduction of pyruvate to lactate • lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) is a tetrameric isoenzyme consisting of H and M subunits; H4 predominates in heart muscle, and M4 in skeletal muscle

  18. Pyruvate to Lactate • while reduction to lactate allows glycolysis to continue, it increases the concentration of lactate and also of H+ in muscle tissue • when blood lactate reaches about 0.4 mg/100 mL, muscle tissue becomes almost completely exhausted

  19. Pyruvate to Ethanol • Yeasts and several other organisms regenerate NAD+ by this two-step pathway • decarboxylation of pyruvate to acetaldehyde • reduction of acetaldehyde to ethanol

  20. Pyruvate to Acetyl-CoA • under aerobic conditions, pyruvate undergoes oxidative decarboxylation • the carboxylate group is converted to CO2 • the remaining two carbons are converted to the acetyl group of acetyl CoA

  21. Energy Yield of Glycolysis

  22. Catabolism of Glycerol • Glycerol enters glycolysis via dihydroxyacetone phosphate

  23. Fatty Acids and Energy • Fatty acids in triglycerides are the principal storage form of energy for most organisms • hydrocarbon chains are a highly reduced form of carbon • the energy yield per gram of fatty acid oxidized is greater than that per gram of carbohydrate oxidized

  24. b-Oxidation • -Oxidation: a series of five enzyme-catalyzed reactions that cleaves carbon atoms two at a time from the carboxyl end of a fatty acid • Reaction 1: the fatty acid is activated by conversion to an acyl CoA; activation is equivalent to the hydrolysis of two high-energy phosphate anhydrides

  25. b-Oxidation • Reaction 2: oxidation of the , carbon-carbon single bond to a carbon-carbon double bond

  26. b-Oxidation • Reaction 3: hydration of the double bond • Reaction 4: oxidation of the 2°alcohol to a ketone

  27. b-Oxidation • Reaction 5: cleavage of the carbon chain by a molecule of CoA-SH

  28. b-Oxidation • this series of reactions is then repeated on the shortened fatty acyl chain and continues until the entire fatty acid chain is degraded to acetyl CoA • b-oxidation of unsaturated fatty acids proceeds in the same way, with an extra step that isomerizes the cis double bond to a trans double bond

  29. Energy Yield from b-Oxidation • Yield of ATP per mole of stearic acid (C18)

  30. Ketone Bodies • Ketone bodies: acetone, -hydroxybutyrate, and acetoacetate • formed principally in liver mitochondria • can be used as a fuel in most tissues and organs • Formation occurs when the amount of acetyl CoA produced is excessive compared to the amount of oxaloacetate available to react with it • intake high in lipids and low in carbohydrates • diabetes not suitably controlled • starvation

  31. Ketone Bodies

  32. Protein Catabolism

  33. Nitrogen of Amino Acids • -NH2 groups move freely by transamination • pyridoxal phosphate (Section18.7B) forms an imine (a C=N group) with the -amino group of an amino acid • rearrangement gives an isomeric imine • hydrolysis of the isomeric imine gives an -ketoacid and pyridoxamine

  34. Nitrogen of Amino Acids • nitrogens to be excreted are collected in glutamate, which is oxidized to a-ketoglutarate and NH4+ • NH4+ then enters the urea cycle

  35. The Urea Cycle - Overview • Urea cycle: a cyclic pathway that produces urea from CO2 and NH4+

  36. The Urea Cycle

  37. The Urea Cycle

  38. Amino Acid Catabolism • The breakdown of amino acid carbon skeletons follows two pathways • glucogenic amino acids: ones whose carbon skeletons are degraded to pyruvate or oxaloacetate, both of which may then be converted to glucose by gluconeogenesis • ketogenic amino acids: ones whose carbon skeletons are degraded to acetyl CoA or acetoacetyl CoA, both of which may then be converted to ketone bodies

  39. Amino Acid Catabolism

  40. Heme Catabolism • When red blood cells are destroyed • globin is hydrolyzed to amino acids • iron is preserved in ferritin, an iron-carrying protein, and reused • heme is converted to bilirubin • bilirubin enters the liver via the bloodstream and is then transferred to the gallbladder where it is stored in the bile and finally excreted in the feces
