About This Quiz & Worksheet

Gauge your understanding of the pentose phosphate pathway with this five-question quiz and worksheet. You should be able to recall what's created by the R5P during the second stage of the pentose phosphate pathway.

Quiz & Worksheet Goals

You'll be quizzed on the following:

  • The definition of 'metabolic pathway'
  • What the pentose phosphate pathway produces
  • Reactions within a cell that typically require NADPH
  • What's created by the R5P in the second pentose phosphate pathway stage
  • The stage in which sugars are created for other metabolic pathways

Skills Practiced

  • Interpreting information - verify that you can read information about what's produced by the pentose phosphate pathway and interpret it correctly
  • Making connections - use what you've learned to make connections between reactions within a cell and NADPH
  • Defining key concepts - ensure that you can accurately define a main phrase, such as metabolic pathway
