Gluconeogenesis: Synthesis of New Glucose

Synthesis of glycogen from glucose iscarried out by the enzyme glycogensynthase

directing more glucose towards muscle glycogen synthesis.

Several molecules of glucose are added to a tyrosine residue of the
glycogenin
enzyme, which permits
glycogen synthase
to begin building the rest of the glycogen chain.
Glycogenin
There are multiple steps involved to get glucose into glycogen

1) The glucose is converted into Glucose-6-Phosphate as usual in glycolysis by
hexokinase
(or glucokinase)

2) The phosphate is moved to carbon 1 on glucose by
Phosphoglucomutase

3) The Glucose 1-phosphate is activated to UDP glucose by
UDP-glucose pyrophosphorylase
The molecule of UDP-glucose is then added to the end of the glycogen chain by glycogen synthase, creating an alpha 1-4 glycosidic bond.

Glycogen is stored as granules in liver and muscle cytoplasm.
Glycogen
Glycogen is a highly-branched polysaccharide of glucose that represents the sugar’s principal storage form in animal cells.

The glucose is derived from three primary sources:
Lactate from anaerobic glycolysis is converted to pyruvate, then oxaloacetate, then malate for mitochondrial export, back to oxaloacetate, then PEP and onward to glucose.

One of the most severe glycogen storage diseases – glycogen is found in very long chains, and has reduced solubility.

The glucose is derived from three primary sources:

1) Lactate from anaerobic glycolysis is converted to pyruvate, then oxaloacetate, then malate for mitochondrial export, back to oxaloacetate, then PEP and onward to glucose.

2) Amino acids at the level of pyruvate from alanine or TCA cycle intermediates from other amino acids.

3) Glycerol enters the pathway at the level of triose phosphates.
Gluconeogenesis is much like glycolysis in reverse, except that certain steps in glycolysis must be bypassed with new enzymes.

Glycogen breakdown and synthesis Flashcards | Quizlet

Which steps are likely to require new enzymes?
1) Lactate from anaerobic glycolysis is converted to pyruvate, then oxaloacetate, then malate for mitochondrial export, back to oxaloacetate, then PEP and onward to glucose.
2) Amino acids at the level of pyruvate from alanine or TCA cycle intermediates from other amino acids.
3) Glycerol enters the pathway at the level of triose phosphates.
What cells are constantly making lactate because they run glycolysis anaerobically?
Glucose 6-phosphatase deficiency: Glc-6-P buildup inhibits glycogen phosphorylase – can’t increase blood glucose in response to glucagon or epinephrine.

Glycogenolysis has some similarities to glycogenesis in reverse, the glucose residues are first removed and simultaneously phosphorylated at carbon number 1 from external alpha 1-4 linkages by
glycogen phosphorylase
, the rate-limiting regulatory step of the process.
Branch points are removed through the combined work of a pair of enzymes, a
transferase
, which removes all but the last alpha 1-6 linked gl
u
cose residue of the branch and transfers it to the end of the main glycogen chain, and a
glucosidase
that cleaves off the alpha 1-6 linked glucose molecule.

Branches are typically found every 10 to 14 glucose units.
After a meal has been digested and glucose levels begin to fall, insulin secretion is reduced, and glycogen synthesis stops.

The liver cannot respond to the need for glucose, and hypoglycemia results.

In individuals afflicted with this disease, muscle cramps occur at the onset of exertion because muscle glycogen cannot be broken down to supply needed glucose for energy.
