Again, the Noble Quran is filled with scientific statements and notions.  These are statements of Allah Almighty describing how He created things on earth and in the Universe.  What's most amazing is that all of these scientific statements and notions had been proven to be in perfect agreement with science and our modern-day scientific discoveries.  Allah Almighty made the Noble Quran be Prophet Muhammad's (peace be upon him) Everlasting Divine Miracle and proof for Prophethood.  The Holy Book certainly stood the test of time 1,500 years ago with Its Claims, Prophecies and Miraculous language eloquence, and it does again and again in our day today with Its overwhelming agreement with science and discoveries that were not known to man 1,500 years ago.

At any given instant, only substrate molecules that are combined with the enzyme as an ES complex can be transformed into product. Second, the equilibrium constant for the formation of the enzyme-substrate complex is not infinitely large. Therefore, even when the substrate is present in excess, (points A and B of Figure), only a fraction of the enzyme may be present as an ES complex. At points A or B, increasing or decreasing [S] therefore will increase or decrease the number of ES complexes with a corresponding change in v i . The rate of reaction is substrate dependent  (First order reaction)- Figure-4

The first solution tested maintained the bound-phosphate balance by adding ribokinase to the glycosome (hypothesis 1 of Fig. ). In the context of impermeable glycosomes, ribokinase would work in the direction of producing ATP and ribose. To be able to model this solution, the enzyme was characterised biochemically ( Kerkhoven et al., 2013 ). However, despite being sufficient theoretically, the results showed that this enzyme alone cannot maintain the bound-phosphate balance. The second solution modelled involves breaking the bound-phosphate balance by introducing an ATP/ADP translocator. However, modelling shows that this translocator would need to be very tightly regulated for the parasite to be viable. This makes it unlikely that such an antiporter alone could represent a solution and more reactions are probably involved in the regulation of the bound-phosphate balance.

The PPP as well as glycolysis and the hexosamine biosynthesis pathway use glucose-6-phosphate. This substrate is oxidized twice by the NADP + -dependent glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase to 6-phospho-glucon-δ-lacton as intermediate and by gluconolactonase to 6-phosphogluconate. In the next step, 6-phosphogluconate is converted to ribulose-5-phosphate by NADP + -dependent 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase. Hereby, 3-keto 6-phosphogluconate occurs as an unstable intermediate. These last three reactions of the PPP result in two molecules of NADPH. The following anaerobic part of PPP allows the conversion of ribulose-5-phosphate to intermediates of glycolysis. So the PPP may rather be seen as a cycle instead of a linear pathway. Isomerization and epimerization of ribulose-5-phosphate allow the formation of ribose-5-phosphate and xylolose-5-phosphate. The enzyme transketolase catalyzes their reaction to seduheptulose-7-phosphate and glycerinaldehyde-3-phosphate. The latter two build erythrose-4-phosphate and fructose-6-phosphate, catalyzed by transaldolase. A final reaction of erythrose-4-phosphate and another molecule of xylolose-5-phosphate form fructose-6-phosphate and glycerinaldehyde-3-phosphate, which may directly enter glycolysis.

The salvage pathways used in microorganisms differ from those of mammals . [29] Some pathogens, such as the yeast Candida glabrata and the bacterium Haemophilus influenzae are NAD + auxotrophs  – they cannot synthesize NAD +  – but possess salvage pathways and thus are dependent on external sources of NAD + or its precursors. [30] [31] Even more surprising is the intracellular pathogen Chlamydia trachomatis , which lacks recognizable candidates for any genes involved in the biosynthesis or salvage of both NAD + and NADP + , and must acquire these coenzymes from its host . [32]

The purpose of these reactions is to release energy stored in the sugar molecule. To explain that process, one must know that a sugar molecule consists of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen atoms held together by means of chemical bonds. A chemical bond is a force of attraction between two atoms. That force of attraction is a form of energy. A sugar molecule with two dozen chemical bonds can be thought of as containing two dozen tiny units of energy. Each time a chemical bond is broken, one unit of energy is set free.
