0-9 (5 marks) Cells carry out anabolic as well as catabolic pathways, with some enzymes functioning in both types of pathways. (a) Explain why these enzymes catalyze near-equilibrium reactions. (b) Explain why opposing anabolic and catabolic pathways must have different enzymes for at least one of the steps. 1 For question 9 in your assignment 2, please consider the following points in your answer: • For part a, you need to mention what is the value of AG near equilibrium reactions, and how would the direction of flux would be controlled (in terms of [substrates] and [product] and what are the rules of enzymes near equilibrium (their effect on the direction of reaction). • For part b, talk about the condition of a metabolic pathway to proceed in both directions (and determine the sign of AG for both forwarded and reversed reactions, then explain what will happen in case the opposing pathways involve different reactions and catalyzed by different enzymes, how would these pathways proceed in terms of free energy.
