Lecture Video: Introduction to Carbohydrate Catabolism

This video by Professor John Essigmann provides an introduction to carbohydrate catabolism. It is the first video in the metabolism portion of the course.

Problem Set & Solutions

Problem Solving Video: Problem Set 6, Problem 2: Mechanism of Phosphoglycerate Mutase

The mechanism of phosphoglycerate mutase, the eighth enzyme in glycolysis, is the focus of this problem. It is this enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of 3-phosphoglycerate to 2-phosphoglycerate.
