3 of 24
In glycolysis the addition of ...x..... converts glucose into ...x......?
2 ATP - 2 Triose phosphate
4 of 24
Triose phosphate is oxidised to form...?
Pyruvate
5 of 24
What are the reactants of the oxidisation of one triose phosphate molecule?
NAD - 2 ADP + Pi
6 of 24
What are the products of one glucose molecule undergoing glycolysis?
2 ATP - 2 reduced NAD - 2 Pyruvate
7 of 24
The link reaction and krebs cycle takes place inside the...?
Matrix of the mitochondria
8 of 24
What are the reactants of the link reaction?
Pyruvate - NAD - CoA
9 of 24
What are the products of the link reaction?
Acetyl CoA - reduced NAD - CO2
10 of 24
What is the second type of hydrogen carrier that is involved in the krebs cycle?
FAD
11 of 24
What are the products of one krebs cycle?
2 CO2 - 1 ATP - 1 reduced FAD - 3 reduced NAD
12 of 24
Where does the electron transport chain take place?
Cristae of the mitrochondria
13 of 24
What do the hydrogen carriers provide in the electron transport chain?
Protons and electrons
14 of 24
Protons and electrons combine with what at the end of the chain, and produce what?
Oxygen - Water
15 of 24
The oxygen in the electron transport chain is the...?
Final electron acceptor
16 of 24
Why does respiration stop at glycolysis in the abesnce of oxygen?
The protons and electrons cannot be formed into water so the process cannot be completed
17 of 24
What is the equation for anaerobic respiration in plants?
Pyruvate + reduced NAD > Ethanol + CO2 + NAD
18 of 24
What is the equation for anaerobic respiration in animals?
Pyruvate + reduced NAD > Lactate + NAD
