a: Gluconeogenesis ~
b: the reverse of glycolysis

What: "Gluconeogenesis is like the reverse of glycolysis, and it can use most of the same enzymes/reactions in reverse. But, the highly regulated reactions in glycolysis with big, negative changes in free energy cannot simply be undone. So you need new mechanisms for these in gluconeogenesis. Gluconeogenesis also costs 6 ATP as a result."

METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
