Default metabolic pathway pneumonic

guys i just found a cool thing about metabolic pathways.
as i was spending my time understanding logic behind each substrate and enzymes i was not able to memorise thing..its just somebody else's work i m just copy pasting it so that it may benefit you.any mistakes feel free to tell me so that we can correct it... and yeah some of the words may not sound good..sorry for that


Steps of glycolysis:

Goodness Gracious Father Franklin Did Go By Picking Pumpkins to Prepare Pie
Thus, the first emphasized letter of each of the above emphasized words relates to the following steps in glycolysis:

Glucose
Glucose-6-Phosphate
Fructose-6-phosphate
Fructose-1,6-biphosphate
Dihydroxyacetone phosphate (DHAP)
Glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate
1,3-Biphosphoglycerate
3-Phosphoglycerate
2-Phosphoglycerate
Phosphoenolpyruvate
Pyruvate
The enzymes involved in the above steps can be remembered with the following memory aid:

High Profile People Act Too Glamorous, Picture Posing Every Place
Again, the first emphasized letter of each of the above emphasized words relates to the following enzymes involved in the above steps in glycolysis:

Hexokinase
Phosphofructo isomerase
Phoshofructokinase
Aldolase
Triose phosphate isomerase
Glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase
Phosphoglycerokinase
Phosphoglyceromutase
Enolase
Pyruvate kinase
Pyruvate Dehydrogenation Complex (PDC) —

Cofactors most important to the pyruvate dehydrogenation complex:

TLC? **** No.
This corresponds to:
E1:
TPP

E2:
Lipoic Acid
Coenzyme A

E3:
FAD
NAD+
Citric Acid Cycle —

Compounds involved in cycle:

Our City Is Kept Safe and Sound From Malace
This corresponds to:

Oxalacetate
Citrate
Isocitrate
Alpha-ketoglutamate
Succinyl-coA
Succinate
Fumarate
Malate
Enzymes involved in cycle:

CAIK Sounds So ****ing Mint.
This corresponds to:

Citrate synthase
Aconitase
Iso-citrate dehydrogenase
Alpha-Ketoglutarate dehydrogenase
Succinyl-coA synthetase
Succinate dehydrogenase
Fumerase
Malate dehydrogenase
Urea Cycle —

Compounds involved in cycle:

Ordinary Careless Crappers Are Also Frivolous About Urination

This corresponds to (indented steps are either requirements or products of that step):

Ornithine
Carboamyl Phosphate
Citruline
Aspartate
Argininosuccinate
Fumarate
Arginine
Urea
Enzymes involved in cycle (OAAA are the enzymes responsible for the indented steps above):

C—OAAA

Carboamyl phosphate synthase
Ornithine transcarbamoxylase
Argininosuccinate synthase
Arginininosuccinase
Arginase
