Understanding a Version of the Pentose Phosphate Pathway That Produces Mainly Ribose-5-P Based on the discussion in Section 22.6, draw a diagram to show how several steps in the pentose phosphate pathway can be bypassed to produce large amounts of ribose-5-phosphate. Begin your diagram with fructose-6-phosphate.

Expert Solution
Interpretation Introduction

To explain:

How beginning from fructose-6-phosphate, production of more ribose-5-phosphate can be achieved by avoiding many steps in pentose phosphate pathway.

Introduction:

This can be achieved by starting from fructose-6-phosphate and by going through non-oxidative pathway.

Explanation of Solution

   Fructose-6-phosphate should go through non-oxidative pathway and avoid the oxidative steps from glucose-6-phosphate to ribulose-5-phosphate. Basically, produced 5-carbon sugars can be converted into ribose...
