Lecture on Pentose Phosphate Pathway

Basic objective of this lecture is to presentation on Pentose Phosphate Pathway. Other names of Pentose Phosphate Pathway is Phosphogluconate Pathway and Hexose Monophosphate Shunt. Here briefly explain the linear part of the pathway carries out oxidation and decarboxylation of the 6-C sugar glucose-6-P, producing the 5-C sugar ribulose-5-P. Regeneration involving reduced glutathione requires NADPH, produced within erythrocytes in the Pentose Phosphate Pathway. Genetic deficiency of Glucose-6-P Dehydrogenase can bring about hemolytic anemia, due in order to inadequate within red blood cells.
