Molecular oxygen is reduced when it accepts electrons and forms water.

The functioning of an electron chain is analogous to

Slinky toy going down a flight of stairs.

Which of the following options lists the stages in cellular respiration in the correct order?

glycolysis, the citric acid cycle, and oxidative phosphorylation

A drug is tested in the laboratory and is found to create holes in both mitochondrial membranes. Scientists suspect that the drug will be harmful to human cells because it will inhibit

the citric acid cycle and oxidative phosphorylation

During which of the following phases of cellular respiration does substrate-level phosphorylation take place?

glycolysis and the citric acid cycle

which of the following metabolic is common in aerobic and anaerobic metabolism?


As a result of glycolysis ther is a net gain of ____ATPs


How many molecules of NADH are produced during glycolysis


Which of the following is a result of glycolysis?

conversion of glucose to two three-carbon compounds

A culture of bacteria growing aerobically is fed glucose containing radioactive carbon and is then examined. As the bacteria metabolize the glucose, radioactively will appear first in


The end products of glycolysis include



forms at the end of glycolysis

Between glycolysis and the citric acid cycle

pyruvate is oxidized while a molecule of NAD+ is reduced to NADH

Which of the following statements regarding the chemical grooming of pyruvate is false?

Each pyruvate molecule has a CO2 added and then joins with an NADH

At the end of the citric acid cycle most of the energy remaining from the original glucose is stored in


During chemiosmosis

ATP is synthesized when H+ ions move through a protein port provided by ATP synthase.

Which of the following statements about the inner mitochondrial membrane is false?

The inner mitochondrial membrane plays a role in the production of pyruvate

The mitochondrial cristae are an adaptation that

increases the space for more copies of the electron transport chain and ATP synthase complexes.

oxidative phosphorylation

If you were able to stop the process of cellular respiration after completing election transport but prior to chemiosmosis, you would find the ph of a mitochondrion to be at its lowest

in the inter membrane space

By products of cellular respiration include

carbon dioxide and water

In the election transport chain, the election acceptor is

An oxygen atom

Rotenone is a poison community added to insecticides. Insects exposed to rotenone will die because

they will no longer be able to produce adequate amounts of ATP

Cyanide differs from dinitrophenol in that

cyanide is an electron transport blocker, while dinitrophenol is a reaction uncoupier.

Which of the following statements about the energy yield of aerobic respiration is false?

Glycolysis and the citric acid must occur____time(s) per glucose molecule


The energy yield from the complete aerobic breakdown of a single molecule of glucose

can vary with the mechanism used to shuttle NADH electrons into the mitochondrion

which of the following processes produce the most ATP per molecule of glucose oxidized?

aerobic respiration

in fermentation____is____


when n organism such as a yeast lives by termentation, it converts the pyruvate from giycoiysis into a different compound, such as alcohol. why doesn't it secrete the pyruvate directly?

the conversion is needed to regenerate the NAD+ consumed during glycolysis

muscle soreness associated with strenuous exercise is at least partly due to

the presence of lactate produced during fermentation in muscle cells

a child is born with a rare disease in which mitochondria are missing from skeletal muscle cells.However,the muscles still function. Physicians find that

the muscle contains large amounts of lactate following even mild physical exercise

Some friends are trying to make wine in their basement. They've added yeast to a sweet.grape juice mixture and has allowed yeast to grow. After several days they find that sugar a levels in the grape juice have dropped, but there's no alcohol in the mixture. The most likely explanation is that

the mixture needs more sugar, because yeast only produce alcohol in the absence of oxygen.

in yeast cells,

alcohol is produced after glycoysis
