Monomer, dimer, and other oligomers obtained from glycolysis of waste PET were used for the synthesis of saturated and unsaturated polyesters [24-26], polyurethanes [27, 28], alkyd resins [29], alkyl-amino resins [30], and polyurethane-based polymeric foams and films [19, 22], Literature survey showed that there is only one article about usage of glycolysis products for synthesis of epoxy resins [31].
In a comparison of glucose values on different tube types, the results suggested that red-top tubes with serum separator (SST) or grey-top tubes with a fluoride glycolysis inhibitor may be used for reproducible glucose determinations.
Cancer cells appear to better withstand interference with energy synthesis in mitochondria since they rely mainly on glycolysis as an energy producing mechanism.
The XF Cell Energy Phenotype of tumors containing the Ras oncogenes shows a significant reliance on glycolysis for energy when stressed, revealing a metabolic vulnerability for survival in the hypoxic and acidic environment of a large tumor.
The role of glucose as the sole source of energy in cancer cells and the influence of glycolysis on tumor survival was not clearly established in the literature, however, we suspected a problem with glucose transport and degradation mechanisms including lactic acid as an end product due to the up-regulation of the lactic dehydeogenase enzyme in tumor cells.
