What is another name for the citric acid cycle and where does it take place?
takes place within the
What is the function of the citric acid cycle?
The cycle oxidizes organic fuel from pyruvate, generating
1 ATP, 3 NADH, and 1 FADH2 per turn.
What is the total energy yield per glucose molecule in the citric acid cycle?
2 FADH2, 2ATP, 6 NADH, 4 CO2
The citric acid cycle has ___ steps, each catalyzed by a specific enzyme.
Briefly describe the eight steps in the citric acid cycle. (2)
acetyl group of acetyl CoA
joins the cycle by combining with
the next seven steps
decompose the citrate back to oxaloacetate
, making the process a cycle.
What do the NADH and FADH2 produced by the citric acid cycle do?
They relay electrons extracted from food to the
electron transport chain.
What makes the citric acid cycle a cycle?
the regeneration of oxaloacetate
Citric acid cycle ___________ under anaerobic conditions.
CoA is actually used in how many steps in the citric acid cycle?
acts as an agent to drive anabolic steo forward
What happened to the carbons of acetyl CoA in the citric acid cycle?
got turned in to
What happened in terms of redox reactions in the citric acid cycle
, electrons got transferred to NADH+ and FADH2
Following glycolysis and the citric acid cycle, what accounts for most of the energy extracted from food?
NADH and FADH2
Where does the electron transport chain take place?
inner membrane of the mitochondria
How do the carriers (proteins) in the electron transport chain alternate as the accept and donate protons?
the carriers alternate
states as they accept and donate electrons
Electron drop in energy as they go down the chain and are finally passed to oxygen, forming ___________.
What is a protein used in the electron transport chain?
The electron transport chain generates how much ATP?
What is the electron transport chain's function?
it's to break the large
from the food to oxygen into smaller steps that release energy in manageable amounts.
Electron transfer in the electron transport chain causes proteins to do what?
causes proteins to
How does H+ then move back across the membrane into the mitochondrial matrix?
by passing through channels in
what is the function of ATP synthase?
of H+ to drive
phosphorylation of ATP
What is example of chemiosmosis?
the use of energy in
to drive cellular work.
What was the net energy yield from the oxidative phosphorylation (per glucose molecule)?
Each pair of electrons released by NADH provides enough energy to produce how many ATP?
Each pair of electrons released by FADH2 provides enough energy to produce how many ATP?
The H+ gradient is referred to as a __________________.
ATP synthesis occurs here
In cellular respiration, what sequence does most
glucose-->NADH-->electron transport chain-->proton-motive force-->ATP
What is the efficiency of cellular respiration?
Before entering the pathway to cellular respiration, what happens to carbohydrates, amino acids, and fats?
: converted to glucose
: undergo beta oxidation
What is required to keep glycolysis running?
In the absence of oxygen, how is ATP produced?
glycolysis couples with fermentation
(anaerobic respiration) to produce ATP
what does anaerobic respiration use instead of oxygen in the electron transport chain?
Fermentation uses __________ instead of an electron transport chain to generate ATP.
What are the two types of fermentation?
lactic acid fermentation
What is alcohol fermentation? give an example.
pyruvate is converted to
in two steps, while releasing CO2.
ex. used by yeast in baking
What is lactic acid fermentation? give an example.
reduced to lactate
to oxidize NAD+. no release of CO2
ex. used by bacteria to make cheese and yogurt
What is a similarity between cellular respiration and fermentation?
both process use
to oxidize glucose and other organic fuels into pyruvate
What are the
final electron acceptors
in fermentation and cellular respiration?
: organic molecule (such as pyruvate)
What are obligate anaerobes?(2)
carry out fermentation
in the presence of oxygen
What are facultative anaerobes? Example?
they can survive using either
fermentation OR cellular respiration
yeast and many bacteria
