To localise the controlling point of the glycolytic system, the temporal changes in concentrations of glycolytic intermediates have been analysed after addition of glycogen to a substrate-depleted yeast extract. Three sequential metabolic states are clearly observable: a transition state at which there is continuous accumulation of the intermediates before the glyceraldehydephosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH, EC step; a stationary state with all glycolytic intermediates having concentrations oscillating at nearly stationary mean values; and a depletion state at which the intermediates before the GAPDH step are being depleted due to the exhaustion of glycogen. In all these states, the mean ethanol production rate and the concentration of ATP and the intermediates beyond the GAPDH-step are maintained fairly constant, while the glycogen consumption rate and intermediate concentrations of the upper part of the glycolytic system changes considerably: the glycogen consumption rate varies 4-fold and fructose-bis-phosphate concentration more than 10-fold. Doubling of the initial glycogen concentration and the addition of a great excess of fructose-bis-phosphate do not affect the ethanol production rate and the mean glycerate-3-phosphate (3-PGA) and pyruvate levels. By contrast, ethanol production was accelerated by an increase of the net ATP consumption rate resulting from either the addition of apyrase or by substitution of trehalose for glycogen. Neither the mean absolute ATP level nor the adenylate energy charge were measurably affected, however, all this data can be interpreted in terms of a very strong stoichiometric regulation and stabilization of the lower part of the glycolytic system.
