Pentose pathways in erythrocyte ghosts
Fortier, Normand Leonard
MetadataShow full item record
The biochemical pathway for the conversion of pentoses to hexoses is readily demonstrated in erythrocytes because of the abundance of the enzymes transaldolase. The pathway of pentose-phosphate synthesis from nucleosides is of interest because it is a means of providing erythrocytes with hexose- and triosephosphates without the participation of adenosine triphosphate. In contrast to glycolysis, the major metabolic chemical sequence in the erythrocyte, the pentose pathway, can be considered to be an energy conserving one [TRUNCATED]
