Q.28. During cellular respiration, number of ATP used during conversion of glucose into glyceraldehyde-3- phosphate is
Please find below the solution to the asked query
For the formation of glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate, 2 molecules of ATP are required. The steps at which they are required are as follows:
- Glucose to glucose 6-phosphate (expenditure of 1 ATP)
- Fructose-6-phosphate to Fructose1,6-bisphosphate (expenditure of 1 ATP).
Glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate is formed by splitting of Fructose1,6-bisphosphate.
Hence, option (2) is correct.
