  • Created by: J.E.C.
  • Created on: 14-10-13 18:02
Type of respiration that requires oxygen and produces CO2, water and much ATP.
Aerobic
1 of 6
Type of respiration that takes place in the absence of oxygen and produces lactate (in animals) or ethanol and CO2 (in plants) but only a little ATP.
Anaerobic
2 of 6
The first stage of aerobic respiration in which a 6-carbon glucose molecule is split into 2 3-carbon pyruvate molecules.
Glycolysis
3 of 6
The second stage of aerobic respiration in which the 3-carbon pyruvate molecule is converted CO2 and a 2-carbon molecule called acetylcoenzyme A.
Link reaction
4 of 6
The third stage of aerobic respiration in whichacetylcoenzyme A is introduced into a cycle of oxidation-reduction reactions that yield some ATP and a large number of electrons.
Krebs cycle
5 of 6
The fourth stage of aerobic respiration in which the electrons produced in the Krebs cycle are used to synthesise ATP with water produced as a by-product.
Electron transport chain
