Imagine a radioactive isotope is tagged onto the carbon farthest from the keto group on a glucose molecule. How far do you anticipate this tagged carbon will go through cellular respiration?
This carbon will be involved in both glycolysis and the Krebs cycle, ending up a part of an oxaloacetate molecule, the recycled substrate that kicks off the catabolic process.
Compared to the equation y = x+6, how do you expect the equation y = (x-5) + 4 behave?
If graphed, the new equation would be 5 units to the right and 2 units below of the previous line.
Give an example of when positive cooperative binding would be detrimental to the body?
Carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. When CO binds to hemoglobin (Hb), it has a high affinity for the protein and binds to Hb in a state that is conducive to substrate binding. When CO binds to a single subunit, it promotes further binding in other subunits, as seen in positive cooperative binding. This is why we must always have a detector in our homes!
