Carbohydrate Metabolism

Carbohydrate Metabolism

Different pathways of carbohydrate metabolism are as follows:

1. Glycolysis

2. Glycogenolysis

3. Glycogenesis

4. HMP shunt pathway

5. Gluconeogenesis

6. Citric acid cycle

Glycolysis: Glycolysis is a catabolic process, in which the glucose is catalysed by oxidation. The energy so obtained, is in the presence of oxygen i.e. anaerobically. Hence it is also called as ‘anaerobic fermentation of glucose’. The oxidation of glucose to pyruvate and lactate is called glycolysis.It is also called as Embden Meyerh of pathway.
