Galicia, September 2018, option A, question 2.
Briefly develop the glycolysis process and indicate:
a) What compound does it start with and what does it end with?
b) where does it take place?
c) what is generated?
d) what is it for?
Murcia, June 2019, option A, question 3.
Answer the following points:
a) What metabolic pathway is the following? (0.25 points):
Glucose + 2 NAD+ + 2 ADP + 2 Pi → 2 Pyruvate + 2 NADH + 2 H+ + 2 ATP + 2 H2O
b) In which cell compartment is it produced? (0.25 points).
c) Explain the possible metabolic fates that the pyruvate produced may have (1 point).
Castilla La Mancha, July 2020, block 2.4
Glycolysis is one of the metabolic processes that previously appeared on the planet.
a. Justify if it is an anabolic or catabolic process and aerobic or anaerobic.
b. Where is it located in the eukaryotic cell? What are your THREE end products?
c. Under anaerobic conditions, explain what metabolic pathway pyruvate can follow.
Basque Country, July 2020, extraordinary test, question 2B
Metabolic pathways: glycolysis and gluconeogenesis.
a) (1 point) Describe with the help of a drawing or diagram what glycolysis consists of. It indicates the molecules involved at the beginning and end of the pathway, where in the cell it is produced, and whether it is anabolic or catabolic.
b) (1 point) Describe with the help of a drawing or diagram what gluconeogenesis consists of. It indicates the molecules involved at the beginning and end of the pathway, where in the cell it is produced, and whether it is anabolic or catabolic.
c) (0.5 points) Can both routes occur simultaneously or are they incompatible? Give reasons for your answer.
Castilla y León, June 2021, question 3
3. In relation to glycolysis:
a) Is it an anabolic or catabolic process? Reason for the answer. (0,4)
b) What is the final product that is obtained and what is the balance of ATP and reducing power? (0.6)
c) In which compartment does it take place? (0.2)
d) Indicate the two destinations that the final product obtained in glycolysis can follow and the differences between them in terms of the need for oxygen and ATP production). (0.8)
Murcia, July 2021, question 2.4
