Students Will Review:
This chapter summarizes the material students need to know about aldol and aldolase for a standard science course. Topics covered include:
- Aldol addition mechanism and reaction
- Definition, mechanism and reaction of aldolase
- Aldolase blood test for elevated and low aldolase levels
1. Aldol Addition: Mechanism & Reaction
The goal of this lesson will be to gain an understanding of a reaction in organic chemistry known as the aldol addition by carefully studying the general reaction form and the reaction mechanism.
2. What is Aldolase? - Definition, Mechanism & Reaction
Aldolase is one of the enzymes involved in glycolysis, acting in step 4 of glycolysis. It breaks the fructose molecule into two smaller molecules, a dihydroxyacetone and a glyceraldehyde.
3. Aldolase Blood Test: Elevated & Low Levels
This lesson is going to go over something known as aldolase. You'll learn what it is, where it's found, how it's tested for, and why it's tested in a clinical setting.
