the process by which cells produce energy (ATP)
Immediate energy for a cell
Begins with glycolysis and produces 2 molecules of pyruvate. Is also known as anaerobic respiration
Consists of the Krebs cycle and ETC. Occurs in the mitochondria and after glycolysis.
the number of ATP aerobic respiration produces
Located in the cristae membrane of the mitochondria. Produces ATP as protons flow down a gradient through a channel.
Electron Transport Chain
Exergonic electron pump located in the cristae membrane necessary for chemiosmosis
A process by which ATP is formed in mitochondria as protons flow down a protongradient through the cristae membrane
Occurs in the cytoplasm of a cell and produces two molecules of pyruvite after breaking down glucose.
Produces a small amount of ATP during glycolysis and the krebs cycle
the way most ATP is produced during aerobic respiration (chemisomosis)
Reduction, oxidation, and cell respiration are these kinds of reactions
the cell gains electrons and hydrogen
the cell loses electrons and hydrogen
Proteins that help make up the ETC
occurs in the inner matrix of the mitochondria and uses pyruvate to produce ATP
