Substrates and products of reaction four?
Substrate - Fructose-1,6-bisphosphate
Product - Glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate and dihydroxyacetone phosphate
ΔG'° of reaction 4
-23.8 KJ mol-1
Two key residues in reaction 4
Lysine (schiff base)
Reaction 4's mechanism
1. Lysine forms a schiff base with C2, C2's oxygen leaves as water
2a. Withdrawal of electrons to NH+ causes bond C3-C4 to donate electrons to C2-C3 eliminating G3P
2b. Aspartate abstracts a proton from C4-O-H forming C4=O3. HN:-C2=C3 tautomerize, aspartate donates its proton to C34. The C2=NH+ schiff base is hydrolyzed completely forming dihydroxyacetone phosphate
