Card Set Information
Cellular Respiration flash cards for bio
What is cellular respiration?
a process that requires O2 and uses energy from glucose (macromolecules) to produce ATP and water
what is the chemical equation for cellular respiration?
C6H12O6 + 6O2 ===> 6CO2 + 6H20 + ATP
organelle where cellular respiration takes place
transfer of one or more electrons from one reactant to another, there are two types of redox reactions: oxadation, reduction
the LOSS of electrons or gaining of oxygen
the GAIN of electrons or gaining of oxygen
What are the four main reactions of cellular respiration?
1. glycolysis (splitting of sugar)
2. Grooming phase
3. Krebs cycle (citric acid cycle)
4. Electron transfer chain (ETC) and oxidative phosphorylation , also called chemiosmosis
Where does glycolysis take place?
in the cytosol, just outside the mitochondria
Where does the grooming phase take place?
migration from the cytosol to the matrix
Where does the Krebs cycle take place?
the mitochondrial matrix
where does ETC and chemiosmosis take place
inner mitochondrial membrane
