Pasteur effect involves:
|A||Inhibition of anaerobic degradation of glucose|
|B||Inhibition of aerobic oxidation of glucose|
|C||Inhibition of gluconeogenesis|
|D||All of the above|
Ans. A Inhibition of anaerobic degradation of glucose
a. The phenomenon of glycolysis by oxygen is termed Pasteur effect.
b. In presence of oxygen O2, as the TCA cycle operates, more ATP is produced which inhibits the key enzyme
phosphofructokinase I, thus decreasing glycolysis.
