Aerobic Cellular Respiration of Glucose.
4 steps. Know the steps, not how many of each is formed, etc.
1. Glycolysis (cytosol): 6 C, is oxidized (loses electrons) to form (2) molecules of (3 C) pyruvate.
2. Synthesis of acetyl-CoA (mitochondria): Pyruvate is oxidized (loses e-) and joined w/ CoA to form acetyl-CoA.
3. Citric Acid Cycle (CAC, Krebs) (mitochondria): Acetyl-CoA enters cycle producing NADH +H^+, FADH^2, and ATP.
4. ETS (electron transport system) (mitochondrial membrane): NADH +H^+, FADH^2, are oxidized to NAD+ and FAD to generate ATP.
