Flashcards in Lecture 40 Deck (23):

In a fasted state what pathways are on and what pathways are off?

-Glycogen breakdown (glycogenolysis)
-Pyruvate carboxylase

-Pyruvate dehydrogenase
-Glycogen synthesis


What enzyme is controlling glycolysis? Gluconeogenesis?

-Citrate controls phosphofruktokinase activity (inhibits)
-Low phosphofruktokinase activity --> low fructose 2,6 P2 --> inc. gluconeogenesis/dec. glycolysis


In a fasted state Pyruvate needs to be used to make ____ and not ____.

-oxaloacetate (gluconeogenesis)
-TCA cycle


During fasting pyruvate dehydrogenase is ___ while pyruvate carboxylase is ____. This is controlled by _____ that is derived from ______.

-Active (gluconeogenesis)
-Acetyl CoA
-b-oxidation of lipid (lipid breakdown)


During fasting lipid breakdown is ___ and lipid synthesis is ____. What controls this?

-Long-chain acyl Co-A from b-oxidation blocks acetyl CoA carboxylase which is needed for lipid synthesis to make malonyl CoA


During fasted state what two hormones are contributing to stimulating glycogenolysis and gluconeogenesis? What is their mechanism of action?

-Glucagon & Epinephrine
-G-protein receptors --> cAMP --> PKA --> Enzyme phosphorylation --> Inc glycogenolysis/gluconeogenesis; Dec glycolysis/lipogenesis


What is the result of phosphorylating the following enzymes:
1. Glycogen phosphorylase
2. Glycogen synthase
3. PFK2
4. Pyruvate Kinase
5. Pyruvate DHase
6. Acetyl CoA Carboxylase

1. On --> glycogen breakdown
2. Off --> glucose storage
3. On --> phosphatase removes F 2,6 P2
4. Off --> inhibits glycolysis
5. Off --> directs pyruvate to gluconeogenesis
6. Off --> turns off lipogenesis


AMP is a signal of ____ and ___ as a result of work/hypoxia.

-Energy deprivation


What is the role of AMPK?

-Activated by high levels of AMP it phosphorylates key enzymes in the cell to promote glycolysis and turn off gluconeogenesis


In conditions of work/hypoxia indicate which pathway is increased/decreased:
1. Gluconeogenesis
2. Glycolysis
3. Fatty acid oxidation
4. Lipogenesis
5. Protein synthesis
6. cholesterol genesis

1. Decreased
2. Increased
3. Increased
4. Decreased
5. Decreased
6. Decreased


What key enzymes does AMPK phosphorylate?

1. Glycogen synthase
2. Glycerol acyl transferase
3. Acetyl Co-A carboxylase
4. HMG CoA reductase


How are enzymes controlled at the gene level in fasted state?

Glucagon --> PKA --> CREB-P --> binds response elements to turn on gluconeogenesis/off lipogenesis


In a well fed state what are 3 enzymes that are promoting glycolysis?

1. Glucokinase
2. PFK --> Fructose 2,6 P2
3. Pyruvate Kinase


In the well-fed state PDHase is ___ while pyruvate carboxylase is ____.



In the well-fed state lipogenesis is turned ___ while lipolysis is turned ____. This is controlled by ____ and _____.

-citrate stim of acetyl CoA carboxylase

Insulin turns off genes in gluconeogenic and fatty acid oxidation pathway by inhibiting ______ which bind to _____

-forkhead txn factor
-insulin response elements


True or False:
Excess glucose can directly regulate gene txn?
