Carbohydrate Metabolism is a collection of metabolic processes responsible for the formation, breakdown, and interconversion of carbohydrates in living organisms. It includes, Carbon Fixation, The Citric Acid Cycle, Glycolysis, Glycogenesis, Gluconeogenesis, and Oxidative Phosphorylation.

Glycolysis

Step 1: Hexokinase:

Step 2: Phosphoglucose isomerase

Step 3: Phosphofructokinase

Step 4: Aldolase

Step 5: Triose Phosphate Isomerase

Step 6: Glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate Dehydrogenase

Step 7: Phosphoglycerate kinase

Step 8: Phosphoglycerate mutase

Step 9: Phosphopyruvate hydratase (enolase)

Step 10: Pyruvate kinase

Citric Acid Cycle

Step 0 / 10 - Aldol condensation - Citrate synthase

Step 1 - Dehydration - Aconitase

Step 2 - Hydration - Aconitase

Step 3 - Oxidation - Isocitrate dehydrogenase

Step 4 - Decarboxylation - Isocitrate dehydrogenase

Step 5 - Oxidative decarboxylation - α-Ketoglutarate dehydrogenase (2-Oxoglutarate Dehydrogenase)

Step 6 - Substrate-level phosphorylation - Succinyl-CoA synthetase

Step 7 - Oxidation - Succinate dehydrogenase

Step 8 - Hydration - Fumarase

Step 9 - Oxidation - Malate dehydrogenase

Step 10 / 0 - Aldol condensation - Citrate synthase

Gluconeogenesis
