how to change Glycerol to Alanine?..

hehehe...I just got a question from a friend of I decided to post it.. answer this problem..
1st, change the glycerol into both of the ways..

1st way:
is by Glucose-alanine cycle
( your text book...)

Pyruvic acid + Glutamic acid <---------------> Alanine + alpha-Ketoglutarate

2nd way:
(...refer serine metabolism...)

3-phosphoglyceric acid-------------->Serine---------->Pyruvate------(seperti di atas)---->Alanine

ok..I think that's 2 ways of converting glycerol to alanine..if you have more method to add..feel free to share :)
