Pathway : Glycolysis / Gluconeogenesis

Identifier  00010 Description  Glycolysis is the process of converting glucose into pyruvate and generating small amounts of ATP energy and NADH reducing power It is a central pathway that produces important precursor metabolites: six-carbon compounds of glucose-6P and fructose-6P and three-carbon compounds of glycerone-P, glyceraldehyde-3P, glycerate-3P, phosphoenolpyruvate, and pyruvate [MD:M00001] Acetyl-CoA, another important precursor metabolite, is produced by oxidative decarboxylation of pyruvate [MD:M00307] When the enzyme genes of this pathway are examined in completely sequenced genomes, the reaction steps of three-carbon compounds from glycerone-P to pyruvate form a conserved core module [MD:M00002], which is found in almost all organisms and which often corresponds to operon structures in bacterial genomes Gluconeogenesis is a synthesis pathway of glucose from noncarbohydrate precursors It is essentially a reversal of glycolysis with minor variations of alternative paths [MD:M00003]
