Words related to glycolysis

a metabolic process that breaks down carbohydrates and sugars through a series of reactions to either pyruvic acid or lactic acid and releases energy for the body in the form of ATP

In neurons, only a small portion of glucose is consumed via the glycolysis pathway.
Respiration on glucose results in a switch from aerobic to fermentative metabolism - equivalent to the Warburg effect in cancer cells - in this case converting the pyruvate product of glycolysis into ethanol rather than lactate.
2-deoxyglucose (2DG) acts as an inhibitor of glucose metabolism since it inhibits hexokinase, which is the first limiting factor enzyme of glycolysis. (8) The result is intracellular ATP depletion (9) and autophagy induction.
Aiming to reduce glycolysis process costs, Nikje and Nikrah [21] tested flexible cold cure PU glycolysis using glycerol (GCL) as solvent and sodium hydroxide (NaOH) as catalyst.
A series of studies performed by Courtney Jones and others in the Jordan lab showed that leukemia stem cells do not (or are perhaps unable) to switch from cellular respiration to glycolysis like more mature cancer cells.
Mechanism of aluminum-induced inhibition of hepatic glycolysis: inactivation of phosphofructokinase.
When oxygen is not available, they produce energy via the less efficient route of anaerobic glycolysis. In the 1920s, Otto Warburg observed that cancer cells do not produce energy in the efficient way that normal cells do.
In the present study, HS-induced upregulation of lactate and pyruvate in the liver (p<0.01) pointed to increased anaerobic glycolysis. In common with this finding, lactate and pyruvate were also upregulated in blood and milk in heat-stressed dairy cows in our previous studies [4,5].
A systemic shift was observed in glucose metabolism from oxidative phosphorylation to aerobic glycolysis. Metabolomics, mRNAseq, and functional assays of cellular glucose uptake after BCG vaccinations confirmed this finding.
Both men and women were less likely to survive if their tumor cells had switched on the genes associated with consuming sugar, or glycolysis. Men whose tumor cells exhibited low glycolysis survived an average of 9 and half years, whereas those with high-glycolysis tumors survived for only six years on average.
Interestingly, the combined analysis of the mRNA and protein data revealed 11 components of the glycolysis pathway as associated with poor survival, pointing to glycolysis as an important feature of tumors likely to progress and to the merits of integrating datasets derived from different platforms (5).
In particular, [IL-10.sup.-/-] mice were characterized by higher levels of lactate, pyruvate, and citrate and lower glucose, which suggested increased fatty acid oxidation and glycolysis [6], suggesting that IBD is close with metabolic disorders.
When this reprogramming involves a transition to aerobic glycolysis, it is commonly referred to as the Warburg effect.
Glycolysis is enhanced in most tumor cells which is named Warburg effect [21], while more than 50% of the energy is generated by glycolysis instead of the tricarboxylic acid cycle even in the presence of oxygen.
This activation induces an increased glycolysis and a disrupted Krebs cycle, in order to supply cell metabolic adaptations and cytokine production.
