Show how our cell's make glucose when they need it!
Gluconeogenesis is an important biochemical pathway that helps maintain a constant glucose supply for our cells. Students make colourful models of the 11 enzymes that carry out gluconeogenesis. They use these to look at what happens at each step in the creation of glucose from pyruvate.
Covers all of the steps of gluconeogenesis clearly whilst giving students an insight into protein structure.
Interesting to compare and contrast with our model of glycolysis.
