Pentose Phosphate Pathway: Overview, Phases of HMP shunt (Oxidative and non-oxidative phases); Reactions and Key enzymes
Regulation, Functions and Diseases of HMP pathway
- Also known as: Pentose shunt/Hexose monophosphate shunt/Phosphogluconate pathway
- An alternate pathway of glucose-6 phosphate utilization
- Operates mainly in liver and adipocytes
- Enzymes of HMP shunt are located in cytoplasm to synthesize Reducing power (NADPH) and Pentose sugar (Ribose 5-Phosphate.
