Synergy Health & Wellness: The Pentose Phosphate Pathway: The missing link between hormonal imbalances and carbohydrate metabolism?


Oxidative reactions of the pentose phosphate pathway--phase 1 reactions (which can happen independently or continue to phase 2 non-oxidative reactions)


TJ . In biochemistry, the pentose phosphate pathway (also called the phosphogluconate pathway and the hexose monophosphate shunt) is a metabolic pathway parallel to glycolysis that generates NADPH and pentoses (5-carbon sugars). While it does involve oxidation of glucose, its primary role is anabolic rather than catabolic. There are two distinct phases in the pathway. The first is the oxidative phase, in which NADPH is generated, and the second is the non-oxidative synthesis of 5-carbon…


The glycolysis, pentose phosphate pathway, fatty acid synthesis, tricarboxylic acid cycle, malate/pyruvate cycle, sterol, glycerophospholipid, sphingolipid and glycerolipid synthesis pathways are outlined.
