51] an increase in proteins involved in most steps in the glycolytic pathway and a decrease in the gluconeogenic reactions in combination with a parallel reduction in several mitochondrial enzymes.
The glycolytic pathway consists of a sequence of biochemical transformations in which sugar (typically glucose or fructose) is converted to a compound known as acetyl coenzyme A, or acetyl CoA, that enters the TCA cycle, resulting in the formation of a large amount of ATP.
A parsimonious explanation of these findings is that after fluoride is mixed with blood it rapidly blocks enolase (within <5 min), and that enzymes upstream of enolase in the glycolytic pathway remain active.
Ghousia Begum and Vasantha Vijaya Raghavan (1999) observed that the enzyme glycogen phosphorylase is involved in glycolytic pathway in the initial catalysis of glycogen to glucose-1-phosphate, by which the glycogen is made available for energy releases under stress.
The data suggest that metabolic adaptations for limiting heat loss in winter include inhibition of aerobic oxidation, enhancement of anaerobic glycolytic pathways of energy supply, and reduction of water exchange.
The glycolytic pathway produces phosphoglycerate which is converted to phosphoserine and then serine which activates the NMDA receptor.
The total capacity of the glycolytic pathway is limited by the progressive increase of acidity within the muscles, caused by the accumulation of hydrogen ions (Verbitsky et al.
In recent years, gene expression pattern from glycolytic pathway of cattle has been thoroughly studied (Hocquette et al.
Emma Shtivelman, director of Cancer Research at Bionovo, "BZL101's treatment of tumor cells leads to the inhibition of glycolysis, as is evident from the decrease in the activity of the enzymes within the glycolytic pathway and inhibition of lactate production.
