Related to glycolytic: glycolytic pathway


A metabolic process that occurs in nearly all living cells in which glucose is converted in a series of steps to pyruvic acid and during which energy is released in the form of ATP.

The translational activities of specific metabolic signals, such as glycolytic flux, in cardiac myocytes are altered in the maladaptation of the heart (Taegtmeyer etal., 2005).
For example, scallops use anaerobic glycolytic metabolism when exposed to environmental hypoxia, and when they experience functional hypoxia after intense swimming or escaping from predators, which is supported by adductor muscle contractions (Chih & Ellington 1983).
"Unlike the regular form of Max, Delta Max actually enhances c-MYC activity, specifically by promoting the glycolytic phenotype of the tumor cells," said Mischel.
Chronic depletion of mitochondrial DNA in both Schwann cells and Dorsal root ganglion neurons in vitro has resulted in decreased enzyme activities of various Krebs cycle enzymes including Malate dehydrogenase, Citrate Synthase and a simultaneous increase in Glycolytic pathway enzymes.
Under anaerobic conditions, LDH becomes an important enzyme due to its ability to regenerate [NAD.sup.+] and allows for continued carbon flow through the glycolytic pathway to support anaerobic ATP synthesis [1].
We found that the expression of many key glycolytic enzymes, such as glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH) and L-lactate dehydrogenase B chain (LDHB), fructose-bisphosphate aldolase A and C (ALDOA, ALDOC), phosphoglycerate kinase 1 (PGK1), alpha-enolase (ENO1), pyruvate kinase isozymes M1/M2 (PKM2), and L-lactate dehydrogenase A chain (LDHA), was drastically reduced in SKBR3_shVPS4B cells.
Recent reports indicate that mTOR activation is a key regulator of the Warburg effect leading to upregulation of glycolytic enzymes [31,32].
This is also called the Glycolytic Pathway and the metabolism of glucose is referred to as glycolysis.
The archaeal glycolytic hexokinase activity were increased.
The researchers chose this specific system, called glycolytic oscillations, to perform a virtual test of the software because it is one of the most extensively studied biological control systems.
However, if the cell needs to produce nucleotides, the oxidative pathway of the PPP will be inhibited and glycolytic intermediates will be used to generate R5P in the non-oxidative phase of the PPP.
In fact, many experts refer to MODY as being either "glucokinase diabetes" (resulting from mutations in the gene that encodes the glycolytic enzyme glucokinase) or "transcription factor diabetes" (resulting from mutations in genes that encode various transcription factors).
