Regulation of glycolysis and gluconeogenesis is a critical concept in biochemistry and often difficult for students to learn. This assignment allows the student to formulate a presentation on the topic and link this to the regulation of aldolase expression in various tissues of the body.
Use PowerPoint 25-minute lesson teaching with a PowerPoint. Each of the following topics should be covered (review the rubric for context):
- An overview of the glycolysis and gluconeogenesis pathways
- How aldolase is involved in both glycolysis and gluconeogenesis
- The different isoforms of aldolase and their different expression patterns
- An examination of how Aldolase B expression can be regulated by transcription factors HNF-1, HNF-3, C/EPB, and DBP
The lesson presentation should include a title and reference slide and have between 10-15 content slides. At least four references should be cited (only one can be the textbook).
While APA style is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and documentation of sources should be presented using APA formatting guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.
