Question details

QUESTION 4 Triose phosphate isomerase catalyzes the isomerization of dihydroxyacetone phosphate to glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate. These metabolites are produced by the splitting of the 6-carbon fructose 1,6-bisphosphate by the glycolytic enzyme aldolase to produce molar equivalents of the three-carbon molecules DHAP and GAP, which are readily interconvertable. Fructose 1,6- bisphosphate DHAP +GAP aldolase DHAP GAP Given AGo 7.55 for DHAP isomerization and starting equimolar concentrations of DHAP and GAP choose the most accurate statement about the spontaneity of the triose phosphate isomerase catalyzed reaction. O The reaction is at equilibrium. The reaction will not proceed spontaneously in either the forward or reverse direction The reaction will proceed toward formation of DHAP The reaction will proceed spontaneously toward the formation of GAP
