Option: 1

6 molecules of 6-phosphogluconolactone

Option: 2

6 molecules of 6-phosphogluconic acid.

Option: 3

6 molecule of ribulose-5-phosphate


Option: 4

4 molecule of xylulose-5-phosphate and 2 molecule of ribose-5-phosphate

Answers (1)


The enzyme glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase converts 6 molecules of glucose-6-phosphate into 6 molecules of 6-phosphogluconolactone when coenzyme NADP is present. 

The reversible process results in the reduction of 6 molecules of NADP.
