Respiration (ATP)

HideShow resource information
What are the uses of ATP?
Nerve transmission, protein synthesis, active transport and muscle contraction
1 of 12
What does ATP stand for?
Adenosine Triphosphate
2 of 12
What are the advantages of ATP as an energy source?
Known as the universal energy currency, provides an energy source for all reactions, requires one enzyme to break it down and releases small amounts of energy to be used immediately
3 of 12
What are the disadvantages of glucose as an energy source?
Requires many enzymes to break it down, contains a large amount of energy that cannot be used immediately, results in an increase of temp in cell if all energy released at once and only used in respiration process
4 of 12
What is phospohorylation?
The addition of phosphate to ADP
5 of 12
What happens to the bonds in phosphorylation of ADP?
They are broken by hydrolysis
6 of 12
Where do the four stages of respiration take place?
Glycolysis - cytoplasm, link reaction/kreb cycle - mitochondrial matrix, electron transport chain - inner membrane/cristae of mitochondria
7 of 12
What products are produced at each stage of respiration?
Glycolysis - (2 NADH/H+,2 net ATP) Link Reaction - (2 NADH/H+,2 CO2) Kreb Cycle - (6 NADH/H+,4 CO2,2 FADH2,2 net ATP) Electron transport chain - (ATP)
8 of 12
Why does the pH decreases in inter membrane space during chemiosmosis?
Proton concentration increases
9 of 12
Production of ATP by chemiosmosis is an example of what?
Oxidative phosphorylation
10 of 12
How does the Kreb cycle produce its products?
It liberates energy from carbon bonds
11 of 12
What is the role of coenzyme A in link reaction?
Produces acetyl coenzyme A that can enter the kreb cycle
