- Chapter 16: Glycogen Metabolism and Gluconeogenesis
Lecture Video: Carbohydrate Biosynthesis II: Gluconeogenesis
This video focuses on gluconeogenesis (GNG) -- the synthesis of glucose from noncarbohydrate precursors. Professor Essigmann explains why this process is particularly important to organs of the body that require glucose as their primary metabolic fuel.
Problem Set & Solutions
Problem Solving Video: Problem Set 10, Problem 3: Gluconeogenesis
Gluconeogenesis is a spontaneous process that involves the synthesis of glucose from non-sugar precursors. In this problem, Dr. Fedeles examines the mechanisms of gluconeogenesis, which require several steps of glycolysis to run in the reverse direction.
