Figure 1: The glycolic pathway. Glycolysis (the metabolism of sugar) is catalyzed by a network of many enzymatic reactions. Gehrmann et al. use a theoretical approach to predict how each reaction impacts the energy supply. Their analysis allows them to identify phosphofructokinase, the relevant enzyme in step 3, as the enzyme responsible for sustained oscillations in glycolysis.
