Metabolism | Pentose Phosphate Pathway

Join us in this video where we discuss the pentose phosphate pathway. We discuss how glucose can use an alternative pathway to make NADPH's, which are essential in antioxidant reactions, cholesterol synthesis, and fatty acid synthesis. It's also important in the synthesis of nucleotides.

The videos includes clear diagrams to map up the abstract pathways and processes of pentose phosphate in metabolism. It helps me to understand and grasp the idea of how our body utilize the energy better and enriches my knowledge on the topic by providing much additional supplementary information on the by-products and side-processes during the metabolism.
