(a)Produces acids, gases, and alcohol
(b)Occurs in the absence of Oxygen
(c)Starts with breakdown of Pyruvic acid
(d)Occurs following glycolysis and produces NAD
(e)All of the above
(e) All of the above
the typical end products of complete aerobic cell respiration are carbon dioxide, water, and
ATP
Oxidation
the loss of electrons
catabolic reaction
break down molecules into smaller units and release energy
anabolic reaction
formation of all molecules
reduction
Gain of electrons
phosphorylation
addition of phosphate group
Photoautotrophs
Use sunlight and carbon dioxide
chemoautotrophs
Use inorganic chemical reactions for energy
photoheterotrophs
Use sunlight as source of energy, and organic compounds as source of carbon
Chemoheterotrophs
Use organic compounds for energy production
chemiosmosis
ATP production fro a proton gradient across the plasma membrane
Glycolysis
Pathway that begins the breakdown of glucose
Electron transport chain
Flavoproteins,cytochromes, and quinones
Fermentation
Anaerobic pathway that uses organic final electron acceptor
Photosynthesis
Pathway that uses carbon dioxide, light, and cholophyll to produce carbohydrates
Krebs cycle
also known as the tricarboxylic acid cycle (TCA) or as the citric acid cycle
Aminoglycoside antibiotics like strepomycin control bacteria by?
inhibiting protein synthesis
the antibiotics with the widest spectrum of activity are the
tetracyclines
peniccilin is specific for bacteria because it
inhibits cell wall synthesis
antibiotics are
chemicals produced by one microorganism that inhibits other microorganisms
