Energy and Metabolism

ID #1653

Is more energy needed to start the reaction of glucose to glucose 6 phosphate or glucose 6 phosphate to fructose 6 phosphate? I know they are both endergonic but is one moreso than the other?


Make sure you look closely at the names of the molecules, and try if possible to deduce what is happening in the reaction. What's the difference between glucose and glucose with a phosphate? What's the difference between glucose and fructose? This will help you decide which one of these reactions might require more energy.
