Regulation of glycolysis

Glycolysis in health and disease

What about the control of flux section? That seems to be regulation. Chris Day 01:56, 16 September 2008 (CDT)
I meant "Neuroendocrine control of glycolysis" or something like that, at another scale. e.g. What are the hormones or messengers involved? I was thinking about a section that would help the reader to relate to these considerations; then, "Glycolysis in health and disease" would help to see how important it is; e.g. glycolysis and aging, and overweight, and fatigue (covered to some extent in article)...
I wasn't clear enough -- too tired. I must have a glycolysis problem. ;-)

Glycolysis and oxidative stress

J Biol. 2008; 7(1): 1. Metabolic reconfiguration is a regulated response to oxidative stress Chris M Grant

A new study reveals that, in response to oxidative stress, organisms can redirect their metabolic flux from glycolysis to the pentose phosphate pathway, the pathway that provides the reducing power for the main cellular redox systems. This ability is conserved between yeast and animals, showing its importance in the adaptation to oxidative stress.
