-ATP is made through Oxidation-Reduction (Redox) reactions by transferring electrons to oxygen or another molecule (the electron transport system)
-similar to the substrate & block the active site, therefore preventing the enzyme from combining w/ substrate
-end product of metabolic pathway acts as noncompetitive inhibitor to first enzymes in pathway
-produces very little energy compared to other metabolic methods (1 or 2 molecules of ATP)
-when grown without oxygen, it produces alcohol & CO2
-used in making bread, beer, wine, etc
-O2 is final electron acceptor in the ETS
-most productive energy source (36-38 ATP)
