    HiHi could anybody possibly help please:

    Name 3 substrate level phosphorylations of nucleotide diphosphates to the triphosphates (as opposed to oxidative phosphorylation) in metabolism

    I don't even know what its going on about >.<

    ADP is a nucleotide- its conversion to ATP is part of the cycle in providing energy through cellular respiration.

    1) In the energy payoff phase in glycolysis,
    two 1,3-bisphosphoglycerate are converted to 3-phosphoglycerate by transferring a phosphate group to ADP

    2) In the Krebs' Cycle, substrate level phosphorylation occurs when succinyl CoA is converted to succinate, again converting ADP to ATP.

    3) Substrate-level phosphorylation is also seen in working skeletal muscles and the brain. Phosphocreatine is stored as a readily available high-energy phosphate supply, and the enzyme creatine phosphokinase transfers a phosphate from phosphocreatine to ADP to produce ATP. Then the ATP releases giving chemical energy. Phosphocreatine, also known as creatine phosphate or PCr, is a phosphorylated creatine molecule that is an important energy store in skeletal muscle.

    "Name 3 substrate level phosphorylations of nucleotide diphosphates to the triphosphates" ADP to ATP, oxidative phosphorylation would be the ETC, so we're talking Krebs and Glycolysis methinks

    what about phosphoenolpyruvate to pyruvate?

    what about phosphoenolpyruvate to pyruvate?
    This would be a valid example as the phosphoenolpyruvate releases a PO3- ion to phosphorylate the ADP to ATP
