I was just wondering if you could help me find out the actual chemical formulas and the interactions between the reactants and the enzymes in ethylene glycol metabolism. I already know that the metabolic pathway is as follows:
Ethylene glycol + alcohol dehydrogenase = glycoaldehyde + aldehyde dehydrogenase = glycolic acid + lactate dehydrogenase/ glycolic acid oxidase = glyoxylic acid/ glyoxalate + various enzymateic pathways = oxalic acid.
What I need to find out, is the actual BALANCED CHEMICAL EQUATIONS of the reactions, and specifically WHAT the enzymes do (eg, oxidation, removal of water ect). I have been searching for days to no avail!!~!
PLEASE HELP it would be MUCH APPRECIATED!!
