2. What does the second option of these two routes do?

  • it can contribute its amino group directly for synthesis of urea
  • it contributes its ammonium ion directly for synthesis of urea
  • it is oxidatively deaminated, which releases an ammonium ion

3. Pyruvate DNP…

  • often produces two spots close together (isomers). More rarely, 2 spots are seen with 2-oxoglutarate DNP as well
  • runs irregularly near the top so ignore the top spots and concentrate on the pyruvate DNP and 2-oxoglutarate DNP spots

4. Tube 9, the reactants were oxoglutarate and the products are oxoglutarate. What was the reaction?

  • no reaction
  • transamination
  • deamination

5. Tube 10, the reactants were none and none. What was the reaction?

  • no reaction
  • deamination
