Question:

A molecule that is phosphorylated

A) has been reduced as a result of a redox reaction involving the loss of an inorganic phosphate.

B) has a decreased chemical reactivity; it is less likely to provide energy for cellular work.

C) has been oxidized as a result of a redox reaction involving the gain of an inorganic phosphate.

D) has an increased chemical reactivity; it is primed to do cellular work.

E) has less energy than before its phosphorylation and therefore less energy for cellular work.



Answer:

D) has an increased chemical reactivity; it is primed to do cellular work.
