Often, biologically metabolic pathways involve a number of enzymatic reactions that are associated with each other. Enzymes that are components of the cellular membranes are usually found on the inner surface of the membranes; the exceptions are enzymes that function externally. Examples are the digestive enzymes: isomaltase, the disaccharidases (lactase, sucrase, and maltase), and certain peptidases located on the brush border of the epithelial cells lining the small intestine. Membrane-associated enzymes are found Copyright 2012 Cengage Learning.

Citrate is a negative modulator of phosphofructokinase. Therefore, an accumulation of citrate in the cell matrix causes the glycolytic pathway to be inhibited by regulating phosphofructokinase. In contrast, an accumulation of AMP or adenosine diphosphate (ADP), which indicates that ATP is depleted, signals the need for additional energy in the cell in the form of ATP. AMP or ADP therefore modulates phosphofructokinase positively. The result is an active glycolytic pathway that ultimately leads to the formation of more ATP through the TCA cycle–electron transport chain connection.

The ER is a quality-control organelle in that it prevents proteins that have not achieved normal tertiary or quaternary structure from reaching the cell surface. The ER can retrieve or retain proteins destined for residency within the ER, or it can target proteins for delivery to the cis-Golgi compartment. Retrieved or exported protein “cargo” is coated with protein complexes called coatomers, abbreviated COPs (coat proteins). Some coatomers are structurally similar to the clathrin coat of endocytic vesicles and are described later in this chapter.
