Card Set Information
a series of reactions (metabolic pathway) that transfer energy from gluclose to ATP
the names of two biochemical pathways:
glycolysis: beginning of cell respiration [process]
Glucose is a stable molecule that contains energy. For its energy to be released it needs to be made unstable. This is done by the energy of two molecules of ATP.
where in the cell does glycolosis occur?
within which cellular organelle does respiration take place?
the reaction for glycolysis:
glucose => three carbon intermediate => pyruvate
the Krebs cycle (citric acid) [process]:
/// ADP+P ==> ATP /// FAD ==> FADH
/// NAD+ ==> NADH
where in the mitochondion does the Krebs cycle take place?
where in the mitochondrion does electron transport occur?
