    CONVERSION OF GLYCEROL-1-PHOSPHATE TO ETHANOL AND CARBON DIOXIDE

    Step 1: Glycerol-1-phosphate can be oxidized to dihydroxyacetone phosphate (DHAP) with the help of the enzyme, glycerol-1-phosphate dehydrogenase. This is the feed-in reaction. It changes glycerol-1-phosphate into a glycolysis intermediate.

    glycerol-1-phosphate + NAD+ -----> DHAP + NADH + H+

    -------------------------------

    Step 2: DHAP is isomerized by triose phosphate isomerase to ...

    Solution Summary

    The solution discusses the possible steps that can convert glycerol-1-phosphate to ehtanol.
