Activation energy
The energy needed to start a chemical reaction
1 of 10
Phosphorylation
The addition of phosphate to ADP
2 of 10
Aerobic respiration
Requires oxygen and produces carbon dioxide, water and much ATP
3 of 10
Anaerobic respiration
Takes place in the absence of oxygen and produces lactate in animals and ethanol and carbon dioxide in yeast, together with little energy
4 of 10
Dehydrogenation
The removal of hydrogen
5 of 10
Decarboxylation
The removal of carbon dioxide
6 of 10
Coenzyme
A molecule required by some enzymes in order to function
7 of 10
Chemiosmotic theory
A model to explain the synthesis of ATP. The theory proposes that the energy for ATP synthesis originates from the electrochemical gradient of protons across a membrane
8 of 10
Photophosphorylation
The synthesis of ATP from ADP and Pi using light energy
