GLUCONEOGENESIS MANNOSE

GLUCONEOGENESIS MANNOSE

10.17.    Mannose

Mannose is the C2 epimer of glucose. Mannose is a substrate for hexokinase which converts it into Mannose 6-phosphate. An enzyme similar to phosphoglucose isomerase, phosphomannose isomerase isomerizes mannose 6-phosphate into fructose-6-phosphate. Fructose 6-phosphate is the substrate for PFK-1.
