    Thiamin (B1)

    Carbonyl transfer
  9. What cofactor helps cyochrome oxidase?
    Cu 2++
  10. What does Fe2+ and Fe3+ do? (3 enzymes)
    Cofactors that work with Cytochrome oxidase, catalase, peroxidase
  11. What does the cofactor K+ aid with?
    The enzyme Pyruvate kinase
  12. What enzymes does Mg2+ aid with? (3)
    Hexokinase, glucose 6-phosphatase, pyruvate kinase
