🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Zhang & Shepler's class at GT.

Solution: Consider the malate dehydrogenase reaction from the citric acid cycle. Given the following concentrations, calculate the free energy change for this reaction at 37.0 °C ( 310 K).  △G° for the reaction is +29.7 kJ/mol. Assume that the reaction occurs at pH 7. [malate] = 1.17 mM[oxaloacetate] = 0.210 mM[NAD+] = 480 mM[NADH] = 190mM

Problem

Consider the malate dehydrogenase reaction from the citric acid cycle. Given the following concentrations, calculate the free energy change for this reaction at 37.0 °C ( 310 K).  △G° for the reaction is +29.7 kJ/mol. Assume that the reaction occurs at pH 7. 

[malate] = 1.17 mM

[oxaloacetate] = 0.210 mM

[NAD+] = 480 mM

[NADH] = 190mM
