The process of removing electrons from molecules.
Oxidation
The process of adding electrons to a molecule.
Reduction
Chemical reactions in the cell need what to make them happen.
Activation energy
Special proteins that bring together two or more reacting molecules without being part of the reaction.
Enzymes
Any chemical that speeds up a reaction without being part of it.
Catalyst
Involves competition between inhibitor and substrate fir the active site.
Competitive inhibition
Inhibitor binds to enzyme somewhere other than the active site.
Noncompetitive inhibition
Anaerobic process - energy is conserved by substrate level phosphorylation and organic molecules serve as both the source and the final acceptors. Produce alcohol.
Fermentation
Process of conserving energy from wither organic or inorganic molecules via electron transport phosphorylation and using atmospheric oxygen or inorganic molecules as terminal electron receptors. ATP.
Respiration
Harvests energy from sunlight via the mechanism of electron transport phosphorylation.
Photophosphorylation
