In the first stage of glycolysis, fructose-1,6-bisphosphate is
cleaved to form glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate and dihydroxy-
acetone phosphate. The latter molecule can then be con-
verted to glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate. Illustrate the
mechanisms whereby these reactions occur.
The mechanism involves an intra-molecular oxidation-reduction where Dihydroxyacetone phosphate (DHAP) is converted to glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate by glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase.
