When a compound donates (loses) electrons, that compound becomes _______. Such a compound is often referred to as an electron donor.
Oxidized
When a compound accepts (gains) electrons, that compound becomes ______. Such a compound is often referred to as an electron acceptor.
Reduced
In glycolysis, the carbon containing compound that functions as the electron donor is what?
Glucose
Once the electron donor in glycolysis gives up its electrons, it is oxidized to a compound called what?
Pyruvate
What is the compound that functions as the electron acceptor in glycolysis.
NAD+
The reduced form of the electron acceptor in glycolysis is what?
NADH
Among the products of glycolysis, which compounds contain energy that can be used by other biological reactions?
Pyruvate, ATP and NADH
In mitochondrial electron transport, what is the direct role of O2?
To function as the final electron acceptor in the electron transport chain.
How would anaerobic conditions (when no O2 is present) affect the rate of electron transport and ATP production during oxidative phosphorylation?
Both electron transport and ATP synthesis would stop.
Under anaerobic conditions (a lack of oxygen), the conversion of pyruvate to acetyl CoA stops. Why does this occur?
In the absence of oxygen, electron transport stops. NADH is no longer converted to NAD+, which is needed for the first three stages of cellular respiration.
In muscle cells, fermentation produces what?
Lactate and NAD+

How many NADH are produced by glycolysis?
Two
In glycolysis, ATP molecules are produced by what?
Substrate level phosphorylation
Which of these is not a product of glycolysis?

Into which molecule are all the carbon atoms in glucose ultimately incorporated during cellular respiration?
Carbon Dioxide
Which of the following statements about the electron transport chain is true?

In cellular respiration, a series of molecules forming an electron transport chain alternately accepts and then donates electrons. What is the advantage of such an electron transport chain?
The advantage of an electron transport chain is that a small amount of energy is released with the transfer of an electron between each pair of intermediates.
