The Chemical Reactions and Pathways Involving Glucose the Aldohexose Gluco Hexose. D Glucose Is Dextrorotatory and Is Sometimes Known As Dextrose; It Is an Important Source of Energy For Living Organisms and Is Found Free As Well As Combined in Homo and Hetero Oligosaccharides and Polysaccharides.
The Chemical Reactions and Pathways Resulting in the Breakdown of a Carbohydrate Into Pyruvate with the Concomitant Production of a Small Amount of Atp. Glycolysis Begins with the Metabolism of a Carbohydrate to Generate Products That Can Enter the Pathway and Ends with the Production of Pyruvate. Pyruvate May Be Converted to Acetyl Coenzyme a Ethanol Lactate or Other Small Molecules.
Catalysis of an Oxidation Reduction (redox) Reaction a Reversible Chemical Reaction in Which the Oxidation State of an Atom or Atoms Within a Molecule Is Altered. One Substrate Acts As a Hydrogen or Electron Donor and Becomes Oxidized While the Other Acts As Hydrogen or Electron Acceptor and Becomes Reduced.
Interacting Selectively and Non Covalently with Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide Phosphate a Coenzyme Involved in Many Redox and Biosynthetic Reactions; Binding May Be to Either the Oxidized Form Nadp+ or the Reduced Form Nadph.
