Glucocorticoid synthesis, phospholipid composition of various mammalian membranes (% total phospholipid)
The reactions necessary for glycogen synthesis are an alternate bypass series of reactions.
Most phospholipids have a saturated fatty acid on C-1 and an unsaturated fatty acid on C-2 of the glycerol backbone. MUFA is monounsaturated fatty acid. The cytoplasmic enzyme is called malic enzyme 1 and is encoded by the ME1 gene that is located on chromosome 6q The reaction, a simple hydrolysis, is catalyzed by fructose-1,6-bisphosphatase F1,6BPase.
