aerobic respiration

cellular respiration that requires oxygen

mitochondrial matrix

pyruvic acid that is produced in glycolysis diffuses across the double membrane; is the space inside the inner membrane of a mitochondrion, contains enzymes needed to catalyze the reactions of the Krebs cycle

acetyl CoA

reacts with pyruvic acid

krebs cycle

biochemical pathway that breaks down acetyl CoA producing CO2 hydrogen atoms and ATP

oxaloacetic acid

4 carbon compound

citric acid

combines with oxaloacetic acid to create a 6carbon compound


molecule very similar to NAD+ and NADP+ in that it accepts electrons during redox reactions

electron transport chain

electron transport chain lines the cell membrane; ATP is produced by the electron transport chain when NADH and fADH2 release hydrogen atoms, regenerating NAD+ and FAD

cell respiration formula

C6H12O6 + 6O2 ---> 6CO2 + 6H2O + energy
