Identify specific numbers of ATP generated and used in the different parts of the cycle, in conjunction with your response from part B1. Can you point out where I’m going wrong in this question??
The process will use two molecules of ATP in the following processes:
Phosphorylation of glucose to glucose-6-phosphate uses one molecule of ATP.
Phosphorylation of fructose-6-phosphate to fructose-1,6-bisphosphate uses one molecule of ATP.
Because the process will only stop at the glycolytic pathway, the following amount of ATPs will be made at the energy payoff phase of glycolysis:
Two molecules of NADH are produced in the reaction involving oxidation of glyceraldehyde phosphate to 1,3-bisphosphoglycerate. The two molecules of NADH will enter the electron transfer chain reaction to produce six ATP.
Two molecules of ATP is produced in the substrate level phosphorylation reaction in which 1,3-bisphosphoglycerate converts to 3-phosphoglycerate.
Two molecules of ATP are produced in the dephosphorylation reaction of both PEP molecules to two pyruvates.
This reaction will produce ten ATP molecules.
