2. Suppose 7 glucose molecules enter glycolysis. Calculate the number of inorganic phosphate molecules required as well as the number of pyruvate molecules produced.
In yeast, ethanol is produced from glucose under anaerobic conditions. A cell-free yeast extract is placed in a solution that contains 2.50 x 10 mmol glucose, 0.35 mmol ADP, 0.35 mmol Pi, 0.70 mmol ATP, 0.20 mmol NAD’, and 0.20 mmol NADH. It is kept under anaerobic conditions. What is the maximum amount of ethanol (in millimoles) that could theoretically be produced under these conditions? maximum amount of ethanol: 0.4 mmol Under the same conditions, what is the theoretical minimum amount of glucose (in millimoles) required in the solution to form the maximum amount of ethanol? minimum amount of glucose required: mmol
