Flux through the pentose shunt pathway is also stimulated by addition of catecholamine neurotransmitters to brain slices, presumably due to formation of H2O2 by monoamine oxidase, as well as by exposure of cells to H2O2 or other peroxides that are substrates for glutathione peroxidases (Fig. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2012] This can reenter other glycolytic pathways such as glycolysis or the HBP (see later in the chapter). SIRP family members are receptor-type transmembrane glycoproteins known to be involved in the negative regulation of receptor tyrosine kinase-coupled signaling processes. Thomas D. Sharkey, in Reference Module in Life Sciences, 2020. The oxidative component of the pathway generates 2NADPH+2 H+ in successive oxidation reactions starting with glucose-6-P and forming 6-P-gluconate (6PG), then ribulose-5-P (R5P)+CO2. The pentose phosphate pathway also produces pentose, another important part of NAD(P)H, from glucose. An additional NADPH is generated from the oxidative decarboxylation of 6-phosphogluconate (6PG) to ribulose 5-phosphate in the 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase (6PGD) reaction. NADPH is a competitive inhibitor of glucose-6-P DH, indicating that consumption of NADPH and formation of NADP+ provides the required substrate for the reaction which is dependent on continuous supply of glucose-6-P that can be derived from blood-borne glucose or glycogen. The pentose phosphate pathway in relation to glycolysis, glycogen metabolism and the tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle. The first step in the metabolism of glucose through the PPP generates NADPH from the oxidation of G6P in the glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) reaction. These two carbon fragments are subsequently combined with a triose to make a pentose. Glutathione metabolism affects PPP activity via the glutathione reductase (GR) enzyme, which generates NADP as a result of the reduction of GSSG with NADPH (Figure 7.5). Since pentose shunt flux is stimulated by the addition of aminopyrine (13) and by barbiturate-pretreatment (14), reducing equivalents for mixed-function oxidations have been considered to arise via this pathway. Conversion by phosphopentose isomerase of ribulose-5-P to ribose-6-P forms the precursor for 5-phosphoribosyl-1-pyrophosphate (PRPP), which is the starting point for de novo synthesis of purine ribonucleotides. Six to eight hours following the administration of 6-aminonicotinamide to rats, 6-phosphogluconate levels were elevated approximately 700-fold (Table 2). JID invites submission of original articles for a Special Issue on Autoimmunity. P.M. Dey, in Plant Biochemistry, 1997. [9] Experiments measuring 14CO2 yields and labeling patterns of various intermediates suggest that 5–15% of respiratory glucose metabolism in plant cells proceeds through the oxidative pentose phosphate pathway and will probably not exceed 30% relative to glycolysis. In total, a series of PPP reactions cycle 6 molecules of glucose-6-phosphate to 5 molecules of glucose-6-phosphate, 12 NADPH and 6 CO2 [18]. Gluconate-6-phosphate dehydrogenase is also strongly inhibited by NADPH and fructose-2,6-bisphosphate. Joerg Klepper, in Handbook of Clinical Neurology, 2013. The ferredoxin reductase is such an example. NADPH is mainly used for fatty acid synthesis, pyruvate oxidation to malate, and the reduction of glutathione. Hence, the PPP links carbohydrate and fatty acid metabolism, anaplerosis, nucleotide synthesis, and antioxidative defense depending on the individual need of a cell’s metabolism. It was, therefore, of interest to examine the effect of an inhibitor of pentose shunt activity on the kinetics of p-nitrophenol production from p-nitroanisole. A final reaction of erythrose-4-phosphate and another molecule of xylolose-5-phosphate form fructose-6-phosphate and glycerinaldehyde-3-phosphate, which may directly enter glycolysis. Like the pentose phosphate pathway, these pathways are related to parts of glycolysis. First, the cytoplasmic protein MESH1 (Q8N4P3),[12] then the mitochondrial protein nocturnin[13][14] were reported. The key enzymes in these carbon-metabolism-related processes are NADP-linked isoforms of malic enzyme, isocitrate dehydrogenase (IDH), and glutamate dehydrogenase. Christina Werner, ... Michael Schwarzer, in The Scientist's Guide to Cardiac Metabolism, 2016. Hereby, 3-keto 6-phosphogluconate occurs as an unstable intermediate. Thus, the predominant function of this pathway is likely to serve different purposes in developing compared to adult brain. Michael Houghton. The major source of NADPH in animals and other non-photosynthetic organisms is the pentose phosphate pathway, by glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PDH) in the first step. In adult brain the flux through the pentose shunt pathway is approximately 5% of the rate of glucose utilization, but brain tissue has a huge excess capacity that is revealed by incubation of brain slices with an artificial electron acceptor, phenazine methosulfate, which stimulates the pathway by 20–50-fold. Ribulose-5-phosphate, the product of the aerobic part of PPP is easily converted to ribose-5-phosphate, which is used for synthesis of nucleotides and nucleic acids. Additionally, the nonoxidative phase of the PPP gives rise to erythrose-4-phosphate, which can contribute to the formation of aromatic amino acids such as phenylalanine, tryptophan, histidine, and tyrosine. TABLE 2. PPP is regulated oncogenically and/or metabolically by numerous factors, including tumor suppressors, oncoproteins, and intracellular metabolites. Gerald A. Dienel, in From Molecules to Networks (Third Edition), 2014. It can be found in the plasma membrane as well as in the membranes of phagosomes used by neutrophil white blood cells to engulf microorganisms. This protein can be phosphorylated by tyrosine kinases. Alternatively, focus can be put on the transketolase reaction. 3.4; GSH, reduced glutathione; GSSG, oxidized glutathione. It also metabolizes dietary pentoses and provides glycolytic/gluconeogenic intermediates. Transaldolase deficiency, described in eight patients, was associated with deafness in one patient (Wamelink et al., 2008). Figure 8.4. Cell Chem Biol, 2020, 27(7):780-792.e5 Thus alteration of the PPP contributes directly to cell proliferation, survival, and senescence. A reduced NADPH/NADP+ ratio should, in principal, signal an increase in cellular demand for NADPH, activation of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase and an increase in the flux through the oxidative pentose phosphate pathway. There are two divisions of the pentose shunt pathway, the oxidative branch and nonoxidative branch (Fig. 3.3; recycling the product, fructose-6-phosphate to glucose-6-phosphate), the more usual products are glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate and fructose-6-phosphate that will then enter glycolysis. The diagnosis was suspected by elevated concentrations of ribitol, D-arabitol, and erythritol in urine and was confirmed by enzyme studies in cultured fibroblasts. [2], In general, NADP+ is synthesized before NADPH is. The Ki values of NADPH for both enzymes are 11 μM and 20 μM, respectively and the pentose phosphate pathway is therefore regulated by the NADPH/NADP+ ratio. One molecule of ribulose-5-phosphate and two molecules of NADPH are produced out of one molecule of glucose. The 6-carbon glucose (denoted as C6 in a box next to glucose) is converted to a C5 intermediate, which by means of interconversions catalyzed by transketolases and transaldolases, can regenerate C6 and C3 glycolytic intermediates. The remaining reactions in the PPP are nonoxidative and freely reversible. [1] Some forms of the NAD+ kinase, notably the one in mitochondria, can also accept NADH to turn it directly into NADPH. In the oxidative pentose phosphate pathway, NADPH is formed through the reactions catalyzed by glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase and gluconate-6-phosphate dehydrogenase. Summary: This gene encodes a member of the NADPH oxidase family of enzymes responsible for the catalytic one-electron transfer of oxygen to generate superoxide or hydrogen peroxide. The various functions of the PPP can provide NADPH from NAD+ and ribose-5-phosphate for the ultimate synthesis of nucleic acids. 6-P-Gluconate and NADP+ are the substrates for the second step, oxidative decarboxylation, that releases carbon 1 of glucose as CO2. No molecular analysis and no specific treatments are yet available. 8.4. This is the only known reaction producing CO2 in mature RBCs. Mechanistically, IgA:virus ICs potentiated a suicidal NETosis pathway via engagement of FcαRI on neutrophils through a toll-like receptor (TLR)-independent, NADPH oxidase complex-dependent pathway. Sayantan Maitra, ... Pradipta Banerjee, in Nutritional and Therapeutic Interventions for Diabetes and Metabolic Syndrome (Second Edition), 2018, Pentose phosphate pathway (PPP) plays a critical role in regulating cancer cell growth by supplying cells with not only ribose-5-phosphate but also NADPH for detoxification of intracellular ROS, reductive biosynthesis, and ribose biogenesis. Furthermore, a large substrate reserve for this pathway is present in well-fed animals in the form of glycogen. The major source of NADPH in animals and other non-photosynthetic organisms is the pentose phosphate pathway, by glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PDH) in the first step. In astrocytes, the pentose phosphate shunt pathway is fueled by glucose and glycogen, whereas neurons are dependent on glucose. Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate, abbreviated NADP+ or, in older notation, TPN (triphosphopyridine nucleotide), is a cofactor used in anabolic reactions, such as the Calvin cycle and lipid and nucleic acid syntheses, which require NADPH as a reducing agent. Although the pentose phosphate pathway can completely convert glucose-6-phosphate into CO2 (see Fig. Mean ± S.E.M. Emphasizing that the cycle as two successive rounds of aldolase chemistry and transketolase reactions can make it much easier to understand. Macrophages provide a first line of defense against microorganisms, and while some mechanisms to kill pathogens such as the oxidative burst are well described, others are still undefined or unknown. The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the signal-regulatory-protein (SIRP) family, and also belongs to the immunoglobulin superfamily. Kartogenin is an activator of the smad4/smad5 pathway, and promotes the selective differentiation of multipotent mesenchymal stem cells into chondrocytes. However, the relative amount of glucose metabolized in the oxidative pentose phosphate pathway and glycolysis remains unclear. The pentose phosphate shunt pathway (Fig. In the presence of oxidants, NADPH is oxidized and the PPP is stimulated because the activities of G6PD and 6PGD are directly related to the concentration of NADP and inversely related to that of NADPH (Yoshida, 1973). NADPH is necessary for a variety of biosynthetic reactions, some of which are highly active during brain growth and maturation (e.g., lipid biosynthesis) and some that are involved biosynthesis of neuroactive compounds, e.g., nitric oxide synthase, as well as in degradation of catecholamine neurotransmitters (monoamine oxidase). For this purpose we have employed 6-aminonicotinamide, which is converted into a compound closely resembling NADP. The low rate of this reaction in RBCs occurs because of limited substrate availability (especially NADP+) and because G6PD is strongly inhibited by NADPH and ATP at physiological concentrations (Yoshida, 1973). So the PPP may rather be seen as a cycle instead of a linear pathway. Control of the chloroplast isoform by the NADPH/NADP+ ratio may therefore be amplified by ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate. The PPP as well as glycolysis and the hexosamine biosynthesis pathway use glucose-6-phosphate. [5] The isocitrate dehydrogenase mechanism appears to be the major source of NADPH in fat and possibly also liver cells. The pentose phosphate pathway (PPP) is an alternative way of glucose use. The ratio of NADPH/NADP+ appears to be the principal factor regulating the flux through the pentose phosphate pathway. Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase and a lactonase catalyze the first committed step of the oxidative pentose phosphate pathway which is a strategic control point. Pentose phosphate pathway (PPP) produce high CO2, which ultimately break down by carbonic anhydrase to form H+ and HCO3– (Jiang et al., 2014). In mode 3, 1 G6P makes 12 NADPH (starting with 6 molecules of G6P oxidized to 6 ribulose 5-phosphates, the ribulose 5-phosphates can be “rearranged by the pathway to form 5 G6Ps.” The overall stoichiometry is: 6 G6P + 12 NADP+ → 5 G6P + 12 NADPH + 6CO2 + Pi). These last three reactions of the PPP result in two molecules of NADPH. The effects of urotensin II on migration and invasion are mediated by NADPH oxidase-derived reactive oxygen species through the c-Jun N-terminal kinase pathway in human hepatoma cells: Author: Y Li, Z Shi, X Yu, P Feng, XJ Wang : Publish_to: Peptides: IF: 2.8510 : PMID: 27988353: Title : NADPH is necessary for a variety of biosynthetic reactions, some of which are highly active during brain growth and maturation (e.g., lipid biosynthesis) and some that are involved biosynthesis of neuroactive compounds, e.g., nitric oxide synthase, as well as in degradation of catecholamine neurotransmitters (monoamine oxidase). Critically, converting one molecule of glucose to ribulose-5-phosphate during the oxidative phase of the PPP converts two NADP + to two NADPH. Abbreviations for compounds in the glycolytic pathway are as in Fig. Some bacteria also use G6PDH for the Entner–Doudoroff pathway, but NADPH production remains the same. Both of these functions are particularly important in developing brain when lipid biosynthesis and cell division are most active. In mode 1, 1 molecule of glucose-6-phosphate (G6P) makes 5 molecules of ribose-5-phosphate (5R5P). Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase is also inhibited by ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate. Rearrangement of the 5-carbon intermediates that are not utilized for biosynthesis via the non-oxidative reactions returns carbon to the glycolytic pathway. On the contrary, it stimulated p-nitrophenolate production from p-nitoanisole over 2-fold (Table 1). The state of chronic positive energy balance is linked to a cluster of conditions, including impaired glucose regulation and insulin resistance, collectively called the metabolic syndrome.25 Hyperglycemia is a distinguishing feature of overnutrition and it is believed to be an independent risk factor for cancer development.26, Z.E. Front Chem , 2019, 7:677 Genome Med , 2017, 10.1186/s13073-017-0407-3 Its aerobic part leads to ribulose-5-phosphate, carbon dioxide (CO2), and reduced nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADPH). An important function of the NADPH is its role as a cofactor in the glutathione reductase and peroxidase systems to eliminate hydrogen peroxide that is produced by various cellular reactions. This substrate is oxidized twice by the NADP+-dependent glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase to 6-phospho-glucon-δ-lacton as intermediate and by gluconolactonase to 6-phosphogluconate. number of livers in parenthesis. Of note, the structures and NADPH binding of MESH1 (5VXA) and nocturnin (6NF0) are not related. It is used by all forms of cellular life. PPP intermediates could also be converted to glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate that returns into the glycolytic pathway, thereby creating a shunt from glucose-6-phosphate that bypasses the initial steps of glycolysis. The following anaerobic part of PPP allows the conversion of ribulose-5-phosphate to intermediates of glycolysis.
